Birgit Penzenstadler

Associate Professor at Software Engineering 1

My research focus is how neuroplasticity practices can support engineers and other computer workers in improving their presence, creativity, cognitive abilities, sleep and overall resilience (for details, see www.twinkleflip.com).
I have been researching the relation between sustainability and software engineering for a decade and focuses on artifact-based requirements engineering and requirements engineering for sustainability. My expertise includes requirements elicitation, analysis, design and documentation techniques, for example sustainability goal modeling, as well as artifact models, quality modeling, tool support, and process improvement (see
www.sustainabilitydesign.org and http://birgit.penzenstadler.de).
