Dr Melina Vidoni

Dr Vidoni is a newly joined academic (Lecturer, eq. to Assistant Professor) at the Australian National University in the School of Computing, where she continues her domestic and international collaborations with Canada and Germany. 

She graduated from Universidad Tecnologica Nacional (UTN) as an Information Systems Engineer. Years later, she received her PhD on the same institution, with the maximum qualification. She funded R-Ladies Santa Fe in 2018, and in 2019 moved to Australia to further her research career. Since 2018, she is also Associate Editor for rOpenSci, often acting as Editor in Chief.

 

Dr Vidoni is currently recruiting students and has two fully-funded HDR positions open. Please refer to: https://melvidoni.rbind.io/students/#gradpositions

Dr Vidoni’s main research interests are mining software repositories, technical debt and software development; empirical software engineering when applied to data science and scientific software. In particular:

  • Empirical Software Engineering
  • Technical Debt
  • Data Science & Scientific Software
  • Mining Software Repositories
