About

My name is David Wille and I grew up and went to school in the northern part of Germany in a small Lower Saxon town close to Bremen. Currently, I am working as a computer scientist with focus on software development in the automotive sector at IAV GmbH in Gifhorn, Germany.

I am interested in traveling, photography, sports (working out at the gym and tennis), good food, cooking and meeting my friends.

Research Associate / PhD Student
01/2015 - 11/2018
Working Group Model-Based Software Engineering, Institute of Software Engineering and Automotive Informatics, Technische Universität Carolo-Wilhelmina Braunschweig

Research of algorithms to automatically reverse-engineer variability between related artifact variants (e.g., statecharts, MATLAB/Simulink models, source code, technical architecture descriptions) using model-based techniques. The identified varibiability information is used to visualize the identified variability relations between the systems, to improve the analyzed systems (e.g., their maintainability) by restructuring them or to transfer the artifacts to a software product line.
