My name is Daniel Graziotin.
First and foremost, I am a coffee junkie. Admitting you have a problem is the first step in fixing the problem. Second step is to grind some beans.
I work as senior researcher (Akademischer Rat) in the Empirical Software Engineering group of the Software Engineering Institute, University of Stuttgart. Within the Empirical Software Engineering group, I am the Head of the Human Aspects of Software Engineering (HASE) division.
What I do: I try to understand humans who engage in digitalization.
This includes people working as software engineers, people using software, people who manage software engineers, and people who study software engineering. Not an easy task.
On my website, I ramble about my research activities, which span from human and behavioral aspects of software engineering (such as the happiness of software developers) to open science and research itself. Here you can read more about me) or contact) me. Sometimes, I post what I call technical articles, which are summaries of solutions of problems I had. Perhaps you find them useful, too.
The paper “The evolution of sentiment analysis—A review of research topics, venues, and top cited papers” has become the most cited paper of the journal Computer Science Review, and the paper “What happens when software developers are (un)happy” has been in the most cited papers of the Journal of Systems and Software.
Our paper “Psychometrics in Behavioral Software Engineering: A Methodological Introduction with Guidelines” has been published at the ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology. I consider this paper to be the piece de resistance of my Habilitation and a core item of my essence as researcher. This is a huge milestone for the Behavioral Software Engineering field!
I have established an independent sub-group at the at the Empirical Software Engineering group, Institute of Software Technology, University of Stuttgart. As Head of the division for Human Aspects of Software Engineering (HASE), I promote bright early career researchers in all fields of behavioral and human aspects of software engineering and its education.
I’m delighted to join PeerJ Computer Science as Academic Editor!
Our paper “The Mind Is a Powerful Place: How Showing Code Comprehensibility Metrics Influences Code Understanding” has been accepted for presentation at the 43rd International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE ‘21) - technical track. Read the preprint here.
