Dennis is a Ph.D. candidate at the Technische Universität München and a scientific staff member at the Chair for Applied Software Engineering. He holds a master's degree (Dipl.-Inf.) in computer science from the Technische Universität München. His research interests include human factors in software engineering with a focus on user involvement, context awareness, and recommender systems in particular for mobile platforms. Dennis mostly applies empirical software engineering research methods in these areas. He participated actively in the open source research projects TeamWeaver and FastFix at the TUM. He co-chaired ME'13 @ SE 2013, will be PC member of SSE'13 @ ESEC/FSE 2013, and served as reviewer in several occasions, such as RE'11 (industry track).
