Who are you and how did you become interested in innovation?
I am a research scientist from Brasil, always interested in the area of Software Engineering, my goal was always to understand how to make people work better in software development, my goal is improvement always, we can always improve and innovate in the way we develop software. Therefore I work to find innovative ways that development teams can work to better software. In SoS-Agile our goal is to help software organisations to improve their software security focus without loosing the agility and self-management of the team.

What is the most important thing you do at work?
To be in connection with the companies and help them understand the effects of the different actions they do, collecting empirical data about the software processes in their software development teams.

What do you focus on in technology / innovation?
Software Engineering and software development processes.

Why is it exciting?
Software is everywhere, and software development is so complex, involving individuals as a very important piece of the complexity. It is amazing to see how small things in the way people behave can change the dynamics of the teams, and of the work. It is so good to see teams growing in maturity and happy with their progress and the product they deliver!

What do you think are the most interesting controversies?
It is interesting to see that many times it is the soft skills helps to solve issues in the development of software products. Communication Strategies are often not given the right focus.

Your own relevant projects last year?
Help software the development teams develop secure software.

Your other favourite examples of similar projects, internationally and nationally?
Science of Security Lablets. 

What do you think is relevant knowledge for the future?
I think that software development is a discipline that the countries should hold, I believe that we should not be only dependent of software developers from outsourced companies. There is much economical gains to be earned from software.

What do we do uniquely well in Norway from this?
Norway has a very good educational system and the developers in Norway are very good. Norway is innovative in the software companies, and there is huge potential for exportation of the software developed in Norway to the world.

A favorite future quote?
