Short CV

Farnaz Fotrousi is a post-doctoral researcher at the Applied Software Technology Group (MAST). She received her PhD in Software Engineering at Blekinge Institue of Technology (BTH). Her master degrees are in Software Engineering at BTH, and Artificial Intelligent at IUST. She is interested in applied research, combining over twelve years of industrial experience in software companies with research knowledge.  Her research interests include user feedback, requirements engineering, continuous software evolution,  product management, and software ethics. Her current research is on Feedback Bots and their applications in Requirements Engineering and Continuous Evolution of Software Systems.

Note. I am available to supervise master theses. If my research topics are interesting for you, please send an email to fotrousi(at)informatik.uni-hamburg.de.

Note. I am available to supervise new master theses. If my research topics are interesting for you, please send an email to fotrousi(at)informatik.uni-hamburg.de.
