Short bio:
Lars Grunske was a research assistant at the Department of Software Engineering and Quality Management of Hasso-Plattner-Institute for Software Systems Engineering. He received a diploma in informatics from the Technical University of Berlin and a diploma in computer engineering from the Berufsakademie Berlin. He worked for the Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin GmbH, Siemens AG TS and Siemens AG CT PP 2. In his recently finished Ph.D. thesis, he explores the problem on how to improve quality characteristics at an architectural level.
