I am interested in improving developer tools, in particular in the context of IDEs. I think IDEs should allow developers to work in the domain of the particular project they are working on, using dynamic, specialized tools instead of the generic tools that are available in many current IDEs. Currently, I am working, in general, on improving debuggers to make them adaptable to one's domain. Furthermore, I want to make debuggers easier to use in one's context by providing better ways to express halting conditions than simple line-based breakpoints. I am also interested, in general, in concurrent programming, software engineering and programming languages. I am open to work on ideas related to these topics.
Seminar, Bachelor, and Master Project Proposals
Currently, I do not have the capacity to take on additional students for projects. However, it never hurts to talk, so feel free to contact me if you are interested in my work or any of the topics below.
The following projects can be scaled up to a master thesis and down to a seminar project.
- PuRE: Pull Request Evolution
- BiCo: Big Commit Analysis
- Pharo Window Manager
- DPI-awareness in Pharo
- Studying best practices in debugging
