Marcel Taeumel is PhD student at the Hasso-Plattner-Institute at the University of Potsdam. He is part of the Software-Architecture group led by Prof. Dr. Robert Hirschfeld. Since October 2011, Marcel has also been part of the HPI Research School after getting is Master's degree in Software Engineering at the HPI, too.
His research activities include the area of integrated tools for programmers, especially code-centric program comprehension. For this, direct manipulation concepts, dynamic analysis, and cooperation of distributed teams in agile processes play an important role.
Additionally, he investigates modularity concepts with respect to critical software quality metrics such as extensibility and maintainability while reasoning about interdependencies between languages and tools.
