Stephan Diehl

Author: Stephan Diehl

I am a full professor at University Trier, Germany.. My main research areas are software engineering and information visualization, and in particular the intersection of both areas, nameley software visualization. My research can be briefly characterized as follows:

applying techniques from compiler design like program transformations and analyses in other areas.
applying (visual) data mining techniques to analyse software evolution.
developing new ways to visualize the change of structured information over time.
