Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Thüm

Thomas Thüm is a professor for the Construction and Analysis of Secure Software Systems at the University of Ulm since January 2020. His research interests range from Software Engineering and Formal Methods to Artificial Intelligence and Security. In particular, his research focuses on variability and evolution of software systems. From 2015 to 2019, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the TU Braunschweig in Ina Schaefer’s institute. He received his Ph.D. in 2015 from the University of Magdeburg under the supervision of Gunter Saake. His Ph.D. thesis received the Dissertation Award 2015 of the University of Magdeburg and his master’s thesis the Software Engineering Award 2011 of the Ernst Denert Foundation. He coauthored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications and is known for his contributions to the famous open-source project FeatureIDE. Since 2020, he is an associate editor for ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (TOSEM).
