Paola Inverardi is full professor at University of L’Aquila. From 2013, she is Rector of University of L’Aquila. 

Her main research area is in the application of rigorous methods to software production in order to improve software quality. In the last decade her research interests mainly concentrated in the field of software architectures. Recent research directions address the problem of dynamically adapting mobile applications to contexts that can exhibit different degrees of resources availability and the automatic synthesis of connectors for heterogeneous systems.
Paola Inverardi has (co-)authored over 200 publications in international journals and conference and workshop proceedings. She has been member at large of the ACM SIFSOFT (ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering) Executive Committee, and member of the ACM Europe Council. She is member of Academia Europea.
