I am a partner engineering manager at Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise divison, Redmond, USA.
I currently manage the Tools for Software Engineers (TSE) team, Microsoft’s main investment into building a single world class engineering system, addressing everything from code review, via build, test, and program analysis, to engineering insights.
Prior to TSE, I managed the Research in Software Engineering team, one of the world’s top software engineering research groups. My research interests include software development tools, ranging from build, via automatic test to deployment, software engineering analytics, ranging from collecting data to prediction, programming languages, ranging from language design to runtimes.
Before joining MSR in 1999, I worked at the University of Ulm (1993-1999), at sd&m, a German software company (1992-1993), and at the Technical University Berlin (1987-1992).
