Isabel Margarido, PhD from ProDEI who graduated in 2016, is part of the Watts S Humphrey Software Quality Award voting committee, given by the SEI and the IEEE Computer Society.
The invitation came from the SEI – CMU (part of the Department of Defense of the USA) in recognition of Isabel’s value as a Scientist, and the Research that she conducted in collaboration with the organisation, while doing her PhD. On a recent visit to DEI, Isabel told us to be a great honour to be part of the committee, as it has limited places, and be among great minds in Software Engineering around the world, some of them who actually had met the Honorary Dr Humphrey in person.
This important award for the Software Engineering community recognises organisations which implemented exceptional improvements that led to better software Quality that are significant, measured, sustained and shared:
Among the other responsibilities of the voting committee, Isabel did proactive work giving several talks to groups concerned with Software and Quality Improvements in the USA, Portugal and Spain, and her last talk at the Software Excellence Alliance (USA) can be watched here.
