Dr. Alexander Raschke

Currently, I'm working mainly on the improvement of the usability of graphical diagram editors. Besides the empirical evaluation of the pitfalls of these tools, we also develop and evaluate new interaction techniques.

Besides that, I'm also interested in formale specification languages, mainly Abstract State Machines (ASMs). If you do not know what that means, see here: https://modelingbook.informatik.uni-ulm.de

Since I'm responsible for the software engineering projects in our software engineering course of studies, I'm also interested in solving all problems that arise when developing software in a team: communication (within the team, with the customer), workload distribution, quality assurance, programming skills, Continous Integration/-deployment, and much more.

Last but not least, I'm teaching functional programming with Haskell for over 10 years and as such, I'm also interested in the (beautiful) application of this programming paradigm.
