I am a software engineer at Google Zurich. In 2019, I received my Ph.D. from Paderborn University (with honors), where I researched the usability of static program analysis tools. Before that, I graduated from EPFL with a M.Sc. in Computer Science.
While very powerful, many current static analysis tools are misused or even abandoned because they are not written with the end-user in mind. My research focuses on improving the usability of analysis tools for code developers through different aspects that range from the optimization of the analysis algorithm to the implementation of its framework to the usability of its interface. In particular, my research interests are scalable static analysis, usable tooling, and secure software engineering.
