Much of the research in Architecture Mining is performed by PhD students and graduating projects in both the graduate (MSc) and the undergraduate schools (BSc).

Current PhD Students:

  • Vinicius Stein Dani works on automated extraction techniques for event logs to support the analyst.

Past PhD students:

  • Leo Pruijt (promotion date: Nov 25, 2015) “Instruments to Evaluate and Improve IT Architecture Work“. Leo’s dissertation focuses on software architecture conformance checking based on dependencies in source code. In his work, we classified many different dependencies, such as class usage, and external variables and methods. His work resulted in the tool HUSACCT.
  • Erik Jagroep (promotion date: Sept. 18, 2017) “Green Software Products“. With Erik we focused on energy consumption of software: what are the guzzlers in my software? In his work, we developed tools and methods to measure energy consumption of software based on software operation data.

Current MSc. students:

  1. Matthijs Ham, on “Supporting group-based decision making in software architecture”.
  2. Brian Janssen, on “Visualizing component interactions in software architecture”
  3. Joris de Boer, on “selecting the right application development platform”
