Claudio Corrodi


I am a PhD student at the Software Composition Group, University of Bern since January 2016. Before starting my PhD, I obtained my master's degree at ETH Zürich and worked from April to December 2015 at the Chair of Software Engineering as a research intern.




Research interests

I am interested in improving developer tools, in particular in the context of IDEs. I think IDEs should allow developers to work in the domain of the particular project they are working on, using dynamic, specialized tools instead of the generic tools that are available in many current IDEs. Currently, I am working, in general, on improving debuggers to make them adaptable to one’s domain. Furthermore, I want to make debuggers easier to use in one’s context by providing better ways to express halting conditions than simple line-based breakpoints.
I am also interested, in general, in concurrent programming, software engineering and programming languages. I am open to work on ideas related to these topics.

Industry Work

Before and during my studies at ETH Zürich, I have been working part-time and during internships at several positions, where I worked as a software engineer on a wide range of projects.
