Name: Marcel Taeumel

Bio: I am a post-doc researcher at the Hasso Plattner Institute at the University of Potsdam. I am part of the Software Architecture group led by Prof. Dr. Robert Hirschfeld. In early 2020, I received a doctorate degree for my work on “Data-driven tool construction in exploratory programming environments.” Since April 2014, I have been participating in the Design Thinking Research Program to investigate interactions between Design Thinking and exploratory programming practices.

My research activities include the area of building graphical tools for programmers, especially data-driven ones for program comprehension tasks. For this, direct manipulation concepts, dynamic analysis, and cooperation of distributed teams in agile processes play an important role. Additionally, I investigate modularity concepts with respect to critical software quality metrics such as extensibility and maintainability while reasoning about interdependencies between languages and tools.
