Short Bio

I received my MSc degree in computer science from the University of Zurich in 2015. My current research as a research assistant and doctoral student builds upon my master thesis, titled "Software Developers' Perceptions of Productivity". My main research interests lie in creating tools to help developers to better self-monitor and reflect their development work to improve their productivity, avoid interruptions and optimize context switches.

I recently did an internship at Microsoft Research in Redmond (Washington, USA) at the ESE Group.
