Roberta Capuano

Post-Doctoral Researcher

University of L'Aquila

Roberta Capuano has a Ph.D. in Information and Communication Technology from L’Aquila University. My PhD is part of the PON 2014-2020 (Programma Operativo Nazionale Ricerca e Innovazione) program [], founded by the Italian government, FESR (Fondo Europeo di Sviluppo Regionale) and FSE (Fondo Sociale Europeo). I got both my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Computer Science at the University of L’Aquila.¬†

My research, with the help of my supervisor Henry Muccini, focuses on Software Architecture and its maintenance. In particular, we investigate the impact of Migration to Microservices on software quality aspects such as performance and sustainability. 

I was part of the following projects: Uffizi Galleries – Univaq, Vasari, and Teach4EDU.
