Research Profile and Publications
A quick glimpse on my research
I am very grateful to the many research collaborators, PhD students, and Post-Docs whom I have had the pleasure to work with. In particular, my Post-Docs contributed a lot to help me run my research group and to co-advise PhD students, even in busy times as a dean. The most recent results would not have been possible without them.
Research as a team effort: 15 A-rated publications of my research team in the last five years 2016-2020:
- 5 papers in A+ journals (4 x Empirical Software Engineering, 1 x Transactions on Software Engineering)
- 10 papers in A-rated conference proceedings (7 x International Conference on Software Engineering, 1 x Foundations of Software Engineering, 2 x Automated Software Engineering).
