I am a PhD student in the Software Engineering and Technology (SET) research group of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Eindhoven University of Technology since October 2011.

In August 2011 I obtained my Master's degree cum laude at the TU/e under the supervision of Alexander Serebrenik. He is also my PhD adviser, as is Mark van den Brand.

In the springs of 2013 and 2014 I was very fortunate to visit Prem Devanbu and Vladimir Filkov at the University of California at Davis.

Find me also on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Scholar or Stack Exchange.

If you're curious about my presentations, I try to keep an updated list on Slideshare. Otherwise, you can find links to slides I used during some conference talks on my Publications page.


My research is centered around the evolution of software and software developer communities, especially open source. I'm curious about how developers self-organise and operate in online communities, e.g., how they present themselves, or how they communicate with each other. Ultimately, I would like to understand how all these social aspects translate to technical solutions (say if and how a developer's personality affects the quality of the code she writes).

I often find myself mining repositories, using metrics, and performing all kinds of statistical analyses. As a hobby I'm also interested in all kinds of computational geometry and algorithmic problems.

Other Activities

I served as Proceedings Chair for ICSM 2013, MESOCA 2013 and CPSM 2013. I was also the Publicity & Social Media Chair for CSMR-WCRE 2014.
