Santiago Matalonga


Docente de la Facultad de Ingeneiría de la Universidad ORT UruguaySantiago Matalonga is researcher at Universidad ORT Uruguay.

He graduated as a systems engineer from Unviersidad ORT Uruguay (2004), and obtained his PhD in software and systems from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (2011), and is currently pursuing post-doctoral studies at COPPE/Universidad Federal do Rio de Janeiro.

He has several publications in international journals and conferences in the area of software engineering.His research interests include experimental software engineering, software testing for the internet of things and return on investment of process improvements initiatives.

Since 2010 he is a ranked researcher in the national research system (SNI, level 1), and since 2012 he is also listed as a researcher in the program for development of basic science (Pedeciba, grade III).                     

He has strong ties to the uruguayan software development industry, were he has worked since 2002. Some of his current engegements include coaching in software development lifecycle management, including the diagnostic, design and deployment of software development methodologies for agile and traditional lifecycles.

Financed research projects

  • Image Guided Surgery: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Optimize Surgeries (2015-2016)

With Facultad de Medicina (UdelaR) and Hamlyn Centre Imperial College. This project was financed by the British Council, with the objective of the development of fluorophores and detection systems to facilitate decision making during surgical procedures.

  • Context Aware Test for Ubiquitous Systems (2014-2016) (CAcTUS)

In collaboration with the Engenharia de Software Experimental Universidad Federal de Río de Janeiro, GREAT from Universidad Federal de Ceará, and Université Valenciennes et du Hainaut-Cambrésis.

El project objective is to develop technologies for testing ubiquitous software systems.

  • Tactics and Patterns For Secure Software Systems (2014-2016) (Tacpat4SS)

In collaboration with Toeska from Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, with researchers from Universidad de Valparaiso (Chile), Universidad de los Andes (Colombia), and Atlantic university (USA).

The project objective is to provide empirical guidelines for selecting methods for evaluating and designing secure software systems.

Work collaborations

  • NaPiRE: Naming the Pain in Requirements Engineering.

NaPiRE constitutes a globally distributed family of surveys on Requirements Engineering. It aims at establishing an open and generalisable set of empirical findings about the status quo as well as practical problems and needs in RE.

The effort is led by Daniel Méndez Fernández (Technische Universität München), and Stefan Wagner (University of Stuttgart).

  •  Reuse Efforts in Software Engineering

We are focusing on acquiring, understanding empirical evidence on the effects of resuse activities in software engineering.

The project is lead by José Luis Barros Justo (Universidad de Vigo), with praticipation from Fernando Pinciroli (Univesidad Champagnat)
