I am professor for Software Engineering at the Institute of Mobile and Distributed Systems of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland .

I am teaching courses at Bachelor and Masters degree in Software Engineering, Software Construction. Software testing and C# and .NET programming within the department of Computer Science.  

My research is focused around everything that helps to make software development more efficient. 

This includes:

  • Agile Methodologies

  • Automated Software Construction
  • Software Metrics and Analysis

I am co-founder of the Swiss Agile Research Network, SARN, and co-author of the bi-annual survey Swiss Agile Study.  The 4. study is still is open. To participate - just click on this link. Thanks a lot for your participation in advance!

I am head of the new continuous education program "CAS Agile Organisation" at the FHNW.  It's an industry course for project managers, team managers, project leaders and company managers, especially also from Non-IT domains, who plan to move to an agile organisation or are already on they way. Participants learn what it means to make your organisation agile.  Read the blogs from the participants from our last course for more information.

I'm Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and member of the Scrum Alliance.

Finally, we recently started with our startup company aTouch dynamics. We develop software tools for agile collaboration using extra-large multi-touch display technology. Our agile collaboration wall aWall,  eliminates the need for physical card walls and enable real distributed agile collaboration and meetings like daily stand-up, sprint planning and more meetings.
