I’m a developer and software quality consultant at CQSE GmbH. I’m also a teacher and student of Software Engineering topics in general. My activities include university-level courses, Code Retreats, the blog Academics Code, the YouTube channel Let’s Developer, and individual consultancy.
I did PhD with Mira Mezini at the Software Technology Group at TU Darmstadt, researching developer-assistance tools, bug detection, mining software repositories, and software testing. I continue to do research on techniques that assist developers in assuring software quality.
I contribute to the following open source projects:
- I am the project lead of MUBench, an open source automated benchmark for API-misuse detectors, i.e., tools that identify incorrect or non-optimal usages of APIs in program code.
- I am the project lead of MUDetect, an API-misuse detector.
- I was a core contributor to the KaVE Software Campus project, in which we built a developer-assistance tool that helps developers learn and use third-party APIs quickly and correctly in their work.
I received the following awards:
- MSR’19 FOSS Impact Paper Special Mention Award for the work presented in my paper Investigating Next Steps In Static API Misuse Detection
I served on the following committees:
- Organizing Committee of the 2nd International Workshop on API Usage and Evolution (WAPI ‘18)
- Organizing Committee of the MSR ‘18 Mining Challenge
- Organizing Committee of the 1st International Workshop on API Usage and Evolution (WAPI ‘17)
- Program Committee of the FSE ‘17 Tool Demonstrations
- Program Committee of the MSR ‘17 Mining Challenge
- Program Committee of the SANER ‘17 Tools Track
