Personal profile

Research interests

By studying the everyday challenges of software practitioners, I strive to develop an evidence-based understanding of the process of software development through fundamental research and to reflect this understanding to practice through novel solutions by means of applied research and technology transfer.

My research interests in software engineering are in the areas of Empirical Software Engineering, Software Analytics, Software Quality Assurance and Testing, Human Factors in Software Engineering and evaluating the effectiveness of different software development methodologies, practices, tools and environments.

My specific goals are to analyse and improve the reliability and quality of software systems, the productivity of development teams and the effectiveness of development/ management practices. I target developing novel concepts, methods, tools and approaches to assist software professionals in critical decision making, resource allocation and process improvement, while facilitating and supporting the adoption of promising software development and management practices.
