Research Project: Glyph-based Visualizations for Debugging Concurrent Java Programs


Latest News: As part of this research project, we are currently conducting an online survey on a visualization of the runtime of thread clusters and the associated insights into the dynamic behavior of the corresponding source code. For each reasonable participation, we will donate 4€ to a charity organisation. The survey is completely anonymous and should take no longer than 20 minutes. We are very grateful for each participation! (last edited: May 5, 2022)

Our main interests in research and teaching are in software engineering and information visualization. In particular, we analyze the evolution of software systems and apply  visualization in software engineering. We apply both empirical as well as constructive research methods. On the one hand, we perform empirical studies to better understand how software developers actually work or what kinds of visualizations are more effective. On the other hand, we develop tools to facilitate and improve the analysis and development of software. In the area of visualization we are mostly interested in dynamic networks, i.e. structural information which changes over time.
