My main research interests are information visualization and software engineering, and in particular the intersection of both—software visualization. A specific focus of my research is on methods for visualizing and comparing large graphs and hierarchies, often in the context of software. My dissertation, which I defended in June 2013, is titled "Understanding Multi-Dimensional Code Couplings".
I graduated in Computer Science (Diplom-Informatiker) at the University of Trier, Germany in 2009. As a research assistant and PhD student, I worked in the Software Engineering Group of Stephan Diehl at the University of Trier (2009-2013) and now continue my research at VISUS, University of Stuttgart, Germany in the group of Daniel Weiskopf. I am member of ACM, IEEE CS, and GI.
