Research interests

I am interested in feedback from software architecure evaluation to requirements engineering. During my PhD research, I have created an approach to automatically improve the performance and other quality attributes of component-based software architectures. Now, I am investigating how to use the gained information in the requirements engineering phase.

See the wiki page on my approach PerOpteryx for details. Bat - Symbol of PerOpteryx

Additionally, I am interested in empirical studies on software architecture topics, especially on the empirical validation of software architecture approaches.

Community Activities

Anne is currently program committee co-chair of SE4SG'14, the 3rd International Workshop on Software Engineering Challenges for the Smart Grid (an ICSE workshop). In the past, she was program committee co-chair of QoSA'13, the Ninth International ACM Sigsoft Conference on the Quality of Software Architectures, and of Palladio Days'12.

She is a program committee member of the following events:

  • ICPE'14, the 5th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering
  • WICSA'14, the Joint 11th Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture
  • CBSE'13, the 16th International ACM Sigsoft Symposium on Component-Based Software Engineering
  • WCOP'13, the 18th International Doctoral Symposium on Components and Architecture
  • Multi-Cloud2013, the 1st International workshop on multi-cloud applications and federated clouds
  • TwinPeaks 2013, and TwinPeaks 2014, the International Workshop on the Twin Peaks of Requirements and Architecture (an ICSE workshop)


Furthermore, she has been a reviewer for the following journals and magazines:


  • ICPE'12 Best Industry-Related Paper Award together with Thijmen de Gooijer, Anton Jansen, and Heiko Koziolek
  • ICPE'11 Best Paper Award together with Catia Trubiani
  • QoSA'09 Best Paper Award together with Klaus Krogmann, Christian M. Schweda, Sabine Buckl, Michael Kuperberg, and Florian Matthes
  • ObjektForum Förderpreis award for my diploma thesis, 2008
