Yuriy Tymchuk

Research Assistant @ University of Bern

I am jack of IT trades, Pharo evangelist, and storyteller. At the moment I'm doing a PhD in Software Composition Group in the University of Bern. My research topic is about software quality. More specifically: how do you define quality rules and communicate detected critics with a developer? A big motivation behind my projects is to find a better way to develop software. Many tools and approaches that we use nowadays were invented in the previous century and there has to be a better way to solve the problems.

I have obtained BSc and MSc at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv in the Facuity of Applied Mathematics and Informatics. Also I've worked for 4 years as an administrator at UARNet ISP. And about a year as a programmer at Interlogic and City Media Digital AS For more information you can download my Curriculum Vitae.

I'm interested in everything that is related with computer science, but I like software evolution and dynamic languages, the most. My other long term interest is a Kyokushinkai karate that I was practicing for 10 years. Also I like hiking, skiing, preparing a mulled wine and singing along while sitting near the fireplace.
