Associate Professor

Unit Lead Software Engineering 2

Chalmers University of Technology

Philipp Leitner

I am an Associate Professor of Software Engineering at Chalmers, a private research university in Gothenburg, Sweden. I currently manage the Software Engineering 2 unit, with approximately 25 faculty and doctoral students. My current research interests are centered around measuring, predicting, and improving the performance of software systems, especially (but not only) in a cloud computing context.

I also lead the Internet Computing and Emerging Technologies Lab (ICET-lab), a research group focussing on various aspects of Internet and cloud computing. I have published some 150 peer-reviewed publications on performance engineering, (micro-) services, cloud systems, and empirical software engineering, leading to an h-index of 45 as tracked by Google Scholar. I am commonly publishing at and reviewing for top conferences and journals in the field, including ICSE, FSE, TSE, and EMSE.

More detailed information, including a full publication list, can be found on my personal webpage.

Postdoc

Chalmers University of Technology

Hamdy Michael Ayas

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Chalmers University of Technology, after defending my dissertation “An Empirical Investigation of Microservices-based Software Architectures from a Socio-Technical Perspective” in May 2024.

I conducted my PhD research under the supervision of Regina Hebig and Philipp Leitner. I studied microservice architectures in practice, with a particular focus on human aspects.

PhD Student

Chalmers University of Technology

Hazem (Peter) Samoaa

I am a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology, working on the intersection of data science and software engineering. My primary area of research is on the usage of active learning for regression models, particularly applied to the use case of predicting the execution time of software.

I conduct my PhD studies under the supervision of Philipp Leitner and Morteza Haghir Chehreghani.

PhD Student

Chalmers University of Technology

Ranim Khojah

I am a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology, conducting research on the use of large language models in software engineering. I conduct my research under the supervision of Philipp Leitner and Francisco Gomes. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering and a master’s degree in Language Technology, both from the University of Gothenburg. My current interests include chatbots that can assist with activities during the software development lifecycle, such as code generation, explanation, and completion.
