Andreas Zeller is a full professor for Software Engineering at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany. His research concerns the analysis of large software systems and their development process; his students are funded by companies like Google, Microsoft, or SAP. In 2010, Zeller was inducted as Fellow of the ACM for his contributions to automated debugging and mining software archives. In 2011, he received an ERC Advanced Grant, Europe's highest and most prestigious individual research grant, for work on specification mining and test case generation. In 2013, he co-founded Testfabrik AG, a start-up for automatic testing of Web applications.

Current work

My group and I are currently working on five topics:
  • Software Testing — Can one test applications systematically and automatically? (We can.)
  • Specification Mining — Can we generate abstractions that capture the common properties of multiple programs or runs? (Yes.)
  • Automatic Parallelization — Can we automatically parallelize existing software? (Frequently.)
  • Mining Software Archives — What can we predict from the history of changes and errors? (A lot.)
  • Automated Debugging — When a program fails, can we automatically determine the cause for the failure? (We can.)
See my publications for my most recent work, and check out my book "Why Programs Fail", for the state of the art in automated debugging.
