My main research focus is on domain specific languages, particularly for mechatronic systems. Mechatronic systems are systems which are jointly developed by mechanical, electrical, control and software engineers, e.g., modern cars. The embedded software is the key driver for innovation in mechatronic systems. I especially focus on self-adaptive software and software in safety-critical systems. I use graph transformations as underlying formal basis in many of these research activities. Furthermore, i employ empirical research methods to understand how humans use software as well as to evaluate technical contributions.
