About me

Since March 2021, I am a research associate at the Chair of Software and Systems Engineering (Prof. Dr. Pretschner). My main research focus lies on test ending criteria, test adequacy criteria and test case generation for testing automated and autonomous driving systems. In this context, I study the scenario-based testing approach.
