Research Interests

My general research interests lie in the following areas:

  • Model-driven Software Engineering
  • Software Architectures and Software Maintainability
  • Component-based Software Engineering
  • Meta-Modeling

I am more specifically interested in techniques, concepts and approaches to enhance reusability and maintainability of artifacts specific to model-driven software engineering. My current focus of research concentrates on improving the maintainability of model transformations.

These are the theses and selected seminar papers I supervised:

  • David Merkel, Reimplementierung einer Performance-Completion in QVT-O zur Verbesserung ihrer Wartbarkeit. Bachelor's thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2011.
  • Per Sterner, Statische Code-Analyse von Modelltransformationen. Diploma thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2012.
  • Dominik Werle, Adding a Module Concept to the Model Transformation Language Xtend. Bachelor's thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2013.
  • Dominik Messinger, Automatic Clustering for Software Architecture Recovery with Bunch. Seminar on Big Data, Architecture and Performance, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2014.

I have been involved in preparation of the annual lecture Komponentenbasierte Softwarearchitektur (Component-based Software Architecture) for summer terms 2011 and 2012, and preparation and teaching one of the slots of lecture Modellgetriebene Software-Entwicklung (Model-Driven Software Development) during summer term 2014.

I organized tutorial lessons for the course Softwaretechnik II (Software Engeering II) during winter term 2011/2012.

Together with my colleagues Max Kramer and Erik Burger, I co-organized the practical course Modellgetriebene Software-Entwicklung (Model-driven Software Development) during winter terms 2012/2013, and 2013/2014.

For our seminar on Requirements Engineering in summer term 2013, I co-reviewed the participants' seminar papers.
