I am an assistant professor in the software science group at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. With my research, I aim to support software developers during the construction and analysis of complex software systems.
Much of my work is in model-driven engineering. I develop model-based languages, tools, and techniques to assure software quality, to manage variability, to establish privacy and security, to support collaborative development, and to explore search spaces.
I investigate systematic AI engineering practices that become increasingly important as AI is finding its way in all areas of society.
I conduct empirical, formal, and engineering research to understand the challenges faced by developers and to study the usability and performance benefits of improved solutions. Application domains of my work include robotics, web-based systems, and IDEs.
July 2021. Paper accepted at MODELS about quality guidelines for MDE research artifacts. Preprint coming soon!
May 2021. First course at Radboud University completed. I am proud of my students' achievements and more than happy about the
course evaluation (average grade 8.3; in the Netherlands, grades above 8 are rarely awarded). Students say:
"I had a very positive experience with the lecturer. He was highly approachable and organized a greatly enjoyable and interesting course, even in the current coronavirus pandemic influenced circumstances. His style of teaching was very understandable and his enthusiasm for the taught topics made the course very enjoyable."
"Great approachability and quality of the lecture (+custom-tailored slides!)."
"The structure and communication of this course were great. Every course should strive to be as clear and structured as this course."
"I greatly enjoyed the course. The content was interesting, the learning goals clear and I find myself frequently applying the knowledge and experience I gained in practice."
April 2021. Are you experienced in model-driven engineering and do you have 15 minutes? Please participate in our survey!
March 2021. Honored to serve on the program committees of FASE 2022, MODELS 2021, SPLC 2021, GPCE 2021, SLE 2021, SEAA 2021. Consider submitting your papers on model-driven engineering, software product lines and other topics!
October 2020. I received a best reviewer award for my work in the program committee of SPLC 2020, the premier conference for systems and software product lines.
