Short Bio

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).

September 2018

I will very soon have another postdoc opening; this time a bit more focused on robotics engineering, but still including some variability research. Contact me for more information.

June 2018

Want to do a postdoc in my team at Chalmers | University of Gothenburg, Sweden? I have a postdoc position (two years, fully funded) in the area of software variability (with ties to robotics and embedded/cyber-phys. systems). Applications only online via this webpage by July 5.

January 2018

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.
