Currently, I am a scientist at ABB Corporate Research in Switzerland where I mainly focus on software engineering research. I am very fortunate and grateful to have been working with amazing people. I was a Ph.D. student at IT University of Copenhagen (Denmark), supervised by Prof. Andrzej Wąsowski. During my Ph.D. I spent 6 months at University of Waterloo, with Prof. Krzysztof Czarnecki where I did most of the work on the Marlin project and the forking as a variability mechanism. The last 1.5 years of my Ph.D., I spent them as a visiting scholar at Carnegie Mellon University with Prof. Christian Kästner where I continued the work on integrating cloned variants into a configurable platform as well as the work on forking with Shurui Zhou.

We got accepted a very interesting paper on Principles of Feature Modeling at the FSE 2019 conference. Congratulations to my co-authors!

Happy to have attended the Dagstuhl seminar 19191 on Integrating Variants and Versions. This is some work I started together with Felix Schwägerl in 2017 and I am happy that we managed to organize a Dagstuhl seminar on this.
