I received my MSc degree summa cum laude in computer science from the University of Zurich in 2011. The thesis, titled "SmellTagger: Augmenting Design and Code Reviews with Multi-Touch Technology", is available online. Since 2011 I'm a research assistant and doctoral student in the Software Engineering Group at the University of Zurich.
My current research focus on psycho-physiological sensors and how these sensors can be used to support software developers. In particular, I'm interested in finding ways to measure the difficulty an individual software developer experiences when working on software tasks and how this measure can be used to support a software developer in his work.
