Nitish Patkar

I am a Ph.D. student at SCG since March 2018. Before joining SCG I finished my masters from Universität Paderborn, and particularly I was working in the S-Lab where I did my research seminars, my master’s project, and my master’s thesis. I wrote my master thesis under Dr. Simon Oberthür titled ’Vision Backlog’ which attempts to improve requirements elicitation process by engaging end users/clients directly into the elicitation activities.

Research Interests

In general, I am interested in building software products/web or mobile applications that are usable, viable and which please its users. Having said that, I largely focus on requirements engineering, particularly requirements elicitation and goal-directed design process. Apart from that, I also concentrate on software modeling. I am interested in building software modeling tools which are usable by the end user- I call it end-user software modeling.

Ongoing projects

  1. Mobile Requirements Elicitation
  2. Vision Backlog
  3. Stakeholder-friendly-Visual-scenario-builder

Available projects

  1. Mining StackOverflow to understand developer concerns regarding domain modeling
