The Applied Software Technology Group welcomes our new team member Daniel Martens.
Daniel joined our group in June 2016 as a research associate and a doctoral candidate under the supervision of Prof. Walid Maalej. He holds a bachelor and master degree in computer science from the University of Hamburg and has a substantial industry experience in particular with developing iOS apps.
Daniel’s current research interests include the democratization of software development (crowdsourcing in RE) and the participatory elicitation of climate data using smart devices and smart sensors.
At MAST he will be responsible a.o. for the “globalization” of M-Lab (app development course) with our international partners. We are looking forward to working with him.
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.
