5 Years of Research: Lessons Learned


In February 2019, the Software Institute started its SI Seminar Series. Every Thursday afternoon, a researcher of the Institute will publicly give a short talk on a software engineering argument of their choice. Examples include, but are not limited to novel interesting papers, seminal papers, personal research overview, discussion of preliminary research ideas, tutorials, and small experiments.

In this talk, I will go through 5 years of my research experience at USI as a PhD student (2016-2020, REVEAL research group) and a Postdoc researcher (2020-2022, SEART research group) and share the lessons I learned through these years that I believe could help younger researchers.
In order to make this talk as interesting as possible, I would like to also collect your thoughts, pieces of wisdom, and lessons you learned through your academic/research career which may help your colleagues to have a more successful research career. For that, I invite you to fill out the form at and I will share the results with you.

Emad Aghajani is a postdoctoral researcher at the SEART research group, at Software Institute, the Universitá della Svizzera italiana (USI), Switzerland. He finished his Ph.D. studies in Computer Science in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Michela Lanza and Prof. Gabriele Bavota at USI. He received his M.Sc. in Software Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in 2016. His research interests include software evolution, software maintenance, mining software repositories, and empirical software engineering. He serves on the program committees of top-tier software engineering conferences such as ICPC, ASE, FSE and SCAM, and reviews for multiple software engineering journals including TSE, IEEE Software, INFSOF, JSS, TOSEM, AUSE, and JSME.
