Patricia Lago | VU

Professor of Software Engineering @ Software and Sustainability (S2) Research Group

I lead the Software and Sustainability (S2) research group in the Department of Computer Science at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
I am also a Guest Professor at Chalmers University of Technology.

My passion in research is to create software engineering knowledge that makes software better, smarter, and more sustainable.

On January 15, 2016 I gave my inaugural speech as a full professor at the VU. My speech was titled “Software and Sustainability”. You can find online both the text and the presentation.
