Research

I am a Ph.D. in Computer Science. My thesis name is Opening Up Trace-Based Mechanisms, which was guided by Professor Dr. Éric Tanter. My thesis was developed at the Pleiad laboratory of the Computer Science Department (DCC) and the Center for Advanced Research in Education (CIAE). Both institutions belong to the University of Chile. After my Ph. D, I have realized many research stays at universities in different countries: Japan – 2019 (6 months), Colombia – 2018 (2 months),  Japan – 2013 (4 months), Japan – 2014 (2 months), and France – 2010 (2 months).

I am interested in different topics related to software engineering and programming languages such as modularity, abstractions, and different approaches. Lately, interested in the application of agent-based simulations to predict user behaviors in different environments (e.g., Marketing).

To promote research in my academic unit and with my collaborators, I have founded the research laboratory Pragmatics Lab. If you want to know more about this laboratory, please drop a line at pleger@gmail.com.
