Paolo Tell has joined the NexGSD research team as Post Doctoral researcher in the Pervasive Interaction Technology Lab (PIT Lab) at the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU). His research interests include software engineering and computer-supported cooperative work.
NexGSD’s Project Coordinator and Professor Jakob Bardram says:
“We are very pleased to welcome Paolo to the research team. He has a strong research background in global software engineering and has been studying tool support for collaboration in distributed software development as part of his PhD. This work has been done with Professor Ali Babar and we’re very glad that Paolo has the opportunity to continue this research as part of the NexGSD project”
Fascinated by activity theory, Paolo’s focus during his PhD has been on leveraging activity-based computing for supporting cooperation in global software engineering (GSE). More specifically, his PhD work revolved around understanding and experimenting with activity theory to build technological support for GSE teams. Currently involved in the NexGSD project, he sees this challenge as a stimulating opportunity to continue researching in both GSE and applications of activity theory by building on his previous research.
Prior to being involved in the NexGSD project, Paolo Tell received a MSc in Software Development and Technology from the ITU, a MSc in Information Technologies, and a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Udine, Italy. Before joining ITU, he also worked for various companies in the area of Udine and Gorizia as a programmer. Among the projects followed, he participated in the Eurofighter Full Mission System simulator project: a cooperative endeavor involving Italy, Spain, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
