Dr. Cécile Péraire has over 20 years of software engineering experience working in
both industry and academia. She earned her Ph.D. in computer science from the Swiss
Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland). Following a postdoctoral
research fellowship at SRI International and Hewlett Packard, she worked at Rational and
IBM where she played different roles covering the many facets of software development.
She has contributed significantly to the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and IBM's
internal methods. Dr. Péraire is currently an Assistant Teaching Professor at Carnegie
Mellon University in Silicon Valley. She co-leads the Education Area of SEMAT (Software
Engineering Method and Theory). She has a passion for innovation in methods, practices,
models and tools that enable teams to more effectively develop and deliver
software-intensive solutions. 

Areas of interest: Agile, lean, and other software engineering development approaches,
measurable process improvement, project management, requirements, architecture, quality,
business processes, and empirical studies.
