Information for Students
I have no explicit office hours, but if you need anything, e.g., information on the courses I teach or about available projects, Bachelor’s theses, and Master’s theses, or just want to chat, do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail at any time and we will arrange an appointment. Information on courses is available in KUSSS.
Ideas for Topics for Practica, Bachelor’s, or Master’s Theses:
- Automated Variability Mining: automatically generate variability models based on analyzing arbitrary, heterogeneous artifacts
- Variability Visualization: come up with new ways to represent variability of software to (end) users, e.g., modelers and configurers
- Variability Management Tools: evaluate and improve (and/or integrate) existing variability management and modeling tools
If you find anything interesting in the areas mentioned above and/or have a suggestion, just contact me, best via email.
