I'm a professor for software engineering and real-time systems at the University of Applied Sciences, Luebeck. This site presents my past and current professional activities in computer science. Moverover, it is a playground for me to experiment with web technologies.

I worked for industry and academic institutions for 13 years before joining the FH Luebeck in August 2006 (see my bio for details). My experiences and interests include software engineering, embedded real-time systems, web technologies, and databases. I teach several courses on these subjects.

If you are interested in requirements engineering, product family engineering, or empirical software engineering, have a look at my publications. I have written more than 40 articles for books, journals, conferences, and workshops and I gave various talks. Also, let me point you to the REFSQ (Requirements Engineering: Foundation of Software Quality) workshop; I was program co-chair of the REFSQ workshop series for several years.

I received a Ph.D in computer science from the University of Kaiserslautern and a M.S. degree (Diploma) in computer science from the Technical University of Berlin, Germany.
