My general research interest is the tool usability in the field of Model-driven (Software) Engineering. In the context of my research activity I focus on collaboration features in graphical modeling tools. In addition to technical challenges, collaboration in MDSE creates new needs in terms of user experience. Especially if modelers collaboratively create a model, it becomes important for them to trace changes made by others and understand how a model has evolved over time. The goal of my research is to improve the comprehensibility of evolving models by developing operation-based and fine-grained model history and related exploration techniques.

In addition to modeling tools, I am also interested in the application of the MDSE, especially in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). Developing and deploying IoT applications from scratch requires a widespread knowledge of different technologies. By encapsulating these heterogeneous technology stack MDSE helps users to develop IoT applications with less effort.
