I am Professor of Software Technology at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. Picture of Martin Monperrus I hold a Chair from the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP). My research contributes to answering two fundamental questions:

How to automatically repair software?
In my group, we invent systems to automatically fix software bugs. Our systems repair Java code, are strongly validated on real bugs and large scale programs. Our software prototypes are all made open-source for sake of reproducible research and open-science. Read more:
- Curated introductory pointers about program repair
- Survey on automatic bug fixing
- Our best-of-breed automatic repair systems for Java: Nopol, Astor, NpeFix
- The possibly largest experiment ever in automatic program repair.

How to construct self-healing software?
Many bugs have more critical consequences than they should have and I claim that it's because most programming paradigms and software stacks are brittle. My second research goal is to understand the causes of software brittleness, and to propose counter-measures so as to achieve truly self-healing software. Read more:
- Curated introductory pointers about self-healing software
- How I stopped worrying and learned to love software errors (antifragile software)
- Techniques: exception injection, correctness attraction.
