Our research associate and doctoral candidate Daniel Martens was recently interviewed for the column “Was macht eigentlich …?” (English: “What is he or she doing actually…?”) of the newsletter of the University of Hamburg. The column appears monthly and gets accessed by thousands of readers. It typically includes a 1-2 interviews with professors and senior staff. Ph.D. students are interviewed only rarely.
Daniel Martens talked about his current research interests and activities, his favorite places and activities at the university, and a mobile application he is developing together with 6 universities and the Local Ministry of Science, Research and Equality (German: Behörde für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Gleichstellung, Short: BWFG).
The complete interview (in German) can be read here.
Every year our research group organizes a doctoral camp. During 2-3 intensive days every doctoral candidate presents her current research activities and discusses the PhD. progress with the professor, the members of the group and 1-2 guests. As in every camp, there are also several side discussions and social events.
This year’s doctoral camp took place from 15th to 17th June 2016 in a Swedish house near a beautiful lake by Malente. Together with our guest Prof. Nicole Novielli, the MAST research group (Prof. Maalej and ten of his Ph.D. students) intensively discussed its ongoing projects on topics including Analytics, Software Documentation, Data-Driven Requirements Engineering, and Global and Collaborative Development. Besides the insightful discussions, our group has further grown together during socializing events such as BBQs, cooking, canoe trips as well as fun sessions and various sports activities. The following pictures give an impression of the three productive and rewarding days.
