Research Interest

My research interest is in the configuration process of software systems and in knowing how configuration options affect a software system. In particular, I’m interested in tracking configuration options across software systems and the technology stack and in detecting configuration violations. In addition, my research also tackles approaches that facilitate the development of AI/ML systems with respect to their configuration.


Theses

I supervise thesis topics mostly in line with my research, such as the configuration of software systems, tracking configuration options with source code analysis, deriving configuration dependencies with repository mining, and configuration of AI/ML projects.

  • Open thesis topics
    • Entwicklung eines Interfaces zur automatisierten Manipulation von Konfigurationsdateien (Bachelor/Master)
    • Automatisierte Mustererkennung von Konfigurationsänderungen in Open Source Softwaresystemen (Bachelor/Master)
  • Currently assigned theses
  • Supervised theses
    • Ermittlung von Konfigurationsoptionen im Source Code mit Focus auf Machine Learning Bibliotheken in Python
    • Tracking Configuration Options in Source Code Focusing on Java Frameworks
    • Literaturanalyse zu Entwicklungsansätzen und -herausforderungen intelligenter Softwaresysteme in der Praxis
    • Klassifikation von Konfigurationsabhängigkeiten zwischen verschiedenen Technologien
