Junior Developer - eMoflon Research

TUD offered me my first international experience. I was brought on as a co-op student to assist a team of graduate students on their research project. Their tool addresses topics like Story Driven Modeling (SDM) and Triple Graph Grammars (TGGs). I helped with documentation by contributing to a 7-part tutorial handbook and extending Eclipse plugins that worked with the tool. I also co-hosted a workshop (English only). Published online, and you can find the tutorial handbook for download on their research page.
