I am a professor of software engineering and head of the Computer Science Department at the University of Iceland in Reykjavík. My work includes:

  • research on interaction among stakeholders in software projects
  • teaching undergraduate and graduate classes
  • advising students and doctoral candidates
  • publishing my research and project work
  • serving on conference committees and review boards
  • managing the CS Department's study programs, outreach activities and operations

I currently have an open PhD student position at the boundary of software engineering and human-computer interaction.

I received my doctoral degree from the University of Leipzig and my Diplom in applied computer science with engineering emphasis from the University of Dortmund. As a post-doc, I led the mobile interaction research group at the University of Duisburg-Essen's Ruhr Institute for Software Technology (paluno), served as acting head of the Software Engineering and Information Systems Chair at Chemnitz University of Technology, and worked as research manager at adesso SE. Off work, I enjoy traveling and photography.
