Bio

Stefan is an associate professor of software engineering at the Institute of Software Technology and Interactive Systems, TU Wien.
He received master and PhD degrees in Computer Science from the TU Wien and a master’s degree in Social and Economic Sciences from the University of Vienna. In 2001 Stefan received an Erwin-Schrödinger research scholarship and spent one year as researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute of Experimental Software Engineering, focusing on quality management and empirical software engineering. Also, in 2001 he received the habilitation degree (Venia Docendi) in Praktische Informatik for work on empirical software engineering in project management and quality management. In 2006 he worked as guest researcher at Czech Technical University, Department of Cybernetics. From 2010 until 2018 he was the head of a Christian Doppler research laboratory.
