Roberto Minelli

Postdoctoral Researcher @ Software Institute


I like reverse engineering, software evolution & visualization, and data science.

I am currently working at the intersection between architecture, computer science, and 3D printing. I am collaborating with the Federal Office of Topography (swisstopo) and Marcello Nasso Architekten (MNA). My reseach is supported by the SNSF Project no. 167173.

In my Ph.D. thesis I developed the concept of "Interaction-Aware Development Environments," IDEs that collect, mine, and leverage developer interactions to better understand and support their workflow. My Ph.D. was supported by the SNSF Project no. 146734.

If you are interested, please check my publications page.


I like design, visual arts, photography, music, and traveling around the world. I am a perfectionist while designing both code and slides.
