I was awarded a PhD degree in Software Engineering by the University of Seville, Spain. Currently, I am a professor at the Department of Exact Sciences and Engineering at UNIJUI University, Brazil, where I lead the Applied Computing Research Group - GCA. In industry, I have five years of experience as a consulting expert in software development. My current research interests focus on the integration of enterprise applications and search-based software engineering.  rzfrantz@unijui.edu.br
