Catia Trubiani is a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI), L’Aquila, Italy, since April 2014. She received the PhD in Computer Science at the University of L’Aquila with a dissertation on the automated generation of architectural feedback from software performance analysis results. Previously she worked at the Electronic Engineering Department of University of Rome "Tor Vergata" within the framework of an EU FP7 project. During her PhD studies she visited the Imperial College of London in UK and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany.
She has also served as reviewer of journals such as IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, IEEE Software, Journal of Systems and Software, Journal of Software and Systems Modeling, and she is member of Program Committee for international conferences such as International Conference on Performance Engineering, International Conference on the Quality of Software Architectures, and several international workshops.
She received the Best Research Paper Award at European Conference on Software Architectures (conference rank A in the core classification) in 2015, the Microsoft Azure Research Award in 2014, and the Best Research Paper Award at International Conference on Performance Engineering in 2011. Her main research interests include the quantitative modelling and analysis of interacting heterogeneous distributed systems. She is especially interested in model-based performance analysis and feedback on software architectures, model-based refactoring by means of software performance antipatterns, and trade-off quality analysis and optimization of software systems.
