I am a third year Ph.D. student in the Software Engineering Group (SERG) at the Alpen-Adria-Universit├Ąt Klagenfurt supervised by Prof. Martin Pinzger. In March 2015, I received my MSc. degree from the Technical University Vienna. My research interests include software evolution, mining software repositories, program analysis, build systems, continuous integration, and empirical studies in software engineering.
