Dr. Daniel Graziotin is a tenured senior researcher (Akademischer Rat) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. His research interests include human, behavioral, and psychological aspects of empirical software engineering, studies of science, and open science. He is associate editor at the Journal of Open Research Software and academic editor at the Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO) journal. Daniel was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship for postdoctoral researchers in 2017, the European Design Award (bronze) in 2016, and the Data Journalism Award in 2015. He received his Ph.D. in computer science at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy.

I welcome students to approach me for starting a thesis or any other project type.
Students should keep in mind that I will be way more motivated to accept a supervision task when the proposal:

  1. originates from students themselves
  2. is in English
  3. is related to my research interests

Of these requirements, I find the first one to be the most important. I expect my students to approach me with at least a broad idea of what they would like to work on. No, "a work on software engineering" is not enough.
The second point can be relaxed but students can not expect a professional correction of their text due to language barriers.
The third point can also be relaxed if the proposal is about an interesting avenue of research.

Due to a high teaching load, I recommend contacting me for a supervised work at least 4-5 weeks before the intended start.
