Research

My research is focussing on software language engineering, the engineering of digital twins, and the model-driven software engineering of information and assistive systems using our generator for data-centric applications, MontiGem. I am experienced in the engineering of domain-specific languages (DSLs) for different application domains, and am convinced, that there exist various further areas where DSLs are helpful. We develop DSLs and methods for domains such as production, ambient assisted living, controlling and finances, smart homes, health, and Internet of Things (IoT). We have created tools using these DSLs as input for code synthesis of digital twins, information, and assistive systems, and they can be used during runtime of these applications.

(Selected) Projects

Projects at RWTH Aachen University:

  • Project leader of MaCoCo (Management Cockpit for Controlling): A multi-user web-application for the decentralized management and controlling of organizational processes within the chairs or institutes of RWTH Aachen university (Founder: RWTH Aachen university)
  • InviDas: Interaktive, visuelle Datenräume zur souveränen, datenschutzrechtlichen Entscheidungsfindung. The aim of InviDas is to provide future and current users of smart wearables, such as fitness watches, better insight into their data profiles and help them to make informed decisions about sharing personal data more easily. (Founder: BMBF)
  • Internet of Production (IoP): Deputy Coordinator CRD-A.II (Conceptual Foundations of Digital Shadows). The Cluster of Excellence Internet of Production the vision to enable a new level of cross-domain collaboration by providing semantically adequate and context-aware data from production, development, and usage in real-time on an appropriate level of granularity.
  • SemanticDiff: A Semantic Approach to Evolution Analysis in Model-Based Software Development (Founder: DFG)

Projects at AAU: Since project start in 2011, I have been a team member of the Human Behavior Monitoring and Support (HBMS) project, where we have developed an assistive system for human behavior support (Founder: Klaus Tschira Stiftung, Heidelberg). See the video playlist for some insights and results.

Publications

My recent publications are focussing on software engineering, model-driven software engineering and software language engineering. I work on domain-specific languages, engineering digital twins, and MDSE for
information and assistive systems especially in the production, smart home, financial controlling, and IoT domain. Please see further publications in my Google scholar or Researchgate profile. For more publications of the Software Engineering group, please have a look at the prepared curated lists.

My PhD thesis at the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt (Prof. Heinrich C. Mayr) was about cognitive modelling for assistive systems.
