Raul Pardo Jimenez

… is a Postdoctoral researcher in the SQUARE group at the IT University of Copenhagen. His research is focused on developing rigorous techniques to design, analyze and build software to protect online privacy. His interests lie at the intersection of formal methods, online privacy and computer security. He has done research on privacy for social networks, Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics. Within these topics, he is working on privacy risk analysis, formal verification of privacy legal requirements, probabilistic programming Bayesian data analysis.

Michael Nieke

… is a postdoc in the Computer Science department at IT University of Copenhagen. He did his Ph.D. at TU Braunschweig focusing on engineering methods to drive the evolution of highly configurable software systems (aka software product lines). His main research is centered around modeling and analyses of configuration knowledge with a particular focus on evolution. In his further research, Michael is interested in model-driven software engineering, including modeling of variability and evolution.

Adrian Hoff

… joined SQUARE in October ’20. His research interests are Software Engineering, Software Visualization and Software Product Lines. In his PhD project ISA (“Immersive Software Archaeology”), Adrian makes use of VR technology to immerse software engineers into a virtual representation of a software system’s structure and behavior. The goal of his research is to make large-scale legacy software systems more accessible and understandable.
