Bio: Paolo Tonella is Full Professor at the Faculty of Informatics and at the Software Institute of Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) in Lugano, Switzerland. He is Honorary Professor at University College London, UK and he is Affiliated Fellow of Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy, where he has been Head of Software Engineering until mid 2018. Paolo Tonella holds an ERC Advanced grant as Principal Investigator of the project PRECRIME. Paolo Tonella wrote over 150 peer reviewed conference papers and over 50 journal papers. His H-index (according to Google scholar) is 54. He is/was in the editorial board of the ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology, of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, of Empirical Software Engineering, Springer, and of the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process, Wiley. Paolo Tonella teaches Information Modeling and Analysis at the Master in Data and Software Engineering.
Paolo Tonella has given foundational contributions to Software Engineering, in the area of code analysis and testing. His ICSE Most Influential Paper (MIP) award winning paper, Analysis and Testing of Web Applications, initiated a new stream of research devoted to the development of testing techniques for web applications. His comprehensive book Reverse Engineering of Object-Oriented Code laid the foundations for the reverse engineering of object-oriented systems. His ISSTA 2004 paper Evolutionary Testing of Classes is recognized as a milestone for the automated generation of object oriented test cases. One of the most widely used Java test case generators, EvoSuite, can be traced back to this seminal ISSTA paper and to the associated tool, eToc.
