Dr. Daniel Graziotin received his PhD in computer science, software engineering at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. He is a tenured senior researcher (Akademischer Rat) at the Institute of Software Engineering, University of Stuttgart, Germany, where he performs independent research and teaching activities in English and in German. He has been the recipient of a two-year Alexander von Humboldt (AvH) Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers in 2017.

Dr. Graziotin’s research interests include human aspects in empirical software engineering with mixed research methods (qualitative and quantitative studies), theory building, inter- and multidisciplinary research with theory, methods, and measurements from psychology, social science, and behavioral science. His research has appeared in venues for software engineering, human-computer interaction, and psychology.

He is associate editor at the Journal of Open Research Software, academic editor at the Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO) journal, and editorial board member the Empirical Software Engineering journal. He has chaired multiple international research conferences (ICSE, ESEC/FSE, ESEM, XP, PROFES) and workshops (CHASE, SEmotion) as well as serving into several program committees.

Dr. Graziotin is an open science advocate and drives the open science initiative at the ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering (SIGSOFT) to foster the practice of open access, open data, and open source at the various research venues in software engineering.

His work has been awarded with the Journal of Systems and Software Best Paper award in 2019, the Jean-Claude Guédon Prize in 2018, the European Design Award (bronze) in 2016, and the Data Journalism Award in 2015.
