Research Interests

Fabian's interests are agile software development, continuous integration and DevOps, model-driven software engineering, domain specific languages and application of natural language processing to software engineering.

Fabian's current projects include approaches to (collaboratively) generate models from user stories (i.e. natural language descriptions), extract design decisions from chat-based communication and improve the management of technical debt with architecture-level metrics. He's also active into enhancing the teaching and learning of software and model-driven engineering through evidence-based research and teaching.
