I’m an Associate Professor in Software Engineering at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering hosted jointly at Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg in Sweden. My research focuses on model-driven software engineering, program analysis, and empirical software engineering. I develop methods and tools for engineering highly configurable software systems, such as software product lines, software ecosystems or cyber-physical and robotics systems.
I received the PhD degree in computer science from the University of Leipzig in Germany in 2013, supported by a scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes). Thereafter, I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Waterloo in Canada and the IT University of Copenhagen in Denmark. As part of my PhD and Postdoc research, I participated in research projects funded by the European Union, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Automotive Partnership Canada, and the Ontario Research Fund for Academic Excellence. In Sweden, as a faculty member, I received grants from the Swedish Research Council (single applicant), from Vinnova Sweden (main applicant) for an EU ITEA project, and from the European Union (co-applicant) for an H2020 project.
My research results are published in major software-engineering conferences (e.g., ICSE, FSE, ASE, OOPSLA) and journals (e.g., IEEE TSE, IEEE Software) and received best-paper awards at the 2015 ACM SIGPLAN conference on MODULARITY and the 2013 European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering (CSMR, now IEEE SANER).
Join my team! I have a PhD position in Software Engineering at Chalmers | University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Contact me for details. Applications only online via this webpage by Feb. 15.October 2017
Launched my new website. I finally had to migrate my old one that was still hosted at the University of Waterloo in Canada, but recently went offline due to server changes. Still need to fill it with more content from the old website.September 2017
With a great team we're organizing SPLC'18 in Gothenburg, see our conference website.
