Computer Science Education Research

I work as a research associate and PhD student at the Computer Science Department of Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster in the working group of Prof. Dr. Jan Vahrenhold (Efficient Algorithms and Algorithm Engineering).

As a member of the Committee on European Computing Education, a joint project of ACM Europe and Informatics Europe, I helped gathering data regarding informatics and digital literacy in European schools. I also built a collaborative map for visualization and world-wide access to this data. The results were published in a report targeting decision makers. It is available online (PDF download).

At the department I work on informatics tutor (teaching assistants) training and try to understand what tutors learn through teaching in this context. I also coordinate and support project seminars and lectures of the group.
