WEN.ONWEB Melissa Wen Software Developer @ Igalia / Brazilian


I’m a Computer Science MSc student at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of São Paulo (IME-USP). I hold a BSc in Computer Science in 2012 from the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA), where I have also served as a temporary professor of numerical analysis.

Before starting my MSc studies I have worked using and developing different free software projects. I have coordinated the front-end team to develop the Software Publico Brasileiro portal and I was a front-end developer of the Noosfero social networking platform at Colivre. In 2013, I also participated in the Outreach Program For Women, contributing to Gedit/GNOME project - see my posts in my old blog.

In 2019, I became part of the FLUSP group and started to learn how contribute to the Linux kernel project. I still have basic development skills and I am contributing to the IIO Subsystem and now the DRM susbystem.

The research project of my MSc studies is about the Linux Kernel Development and Community. My areas of interest include Software Engineering and Free Software Development.
