Alexander Serebrenik is a Full Professor of Social Software Engineering at the Software Engineering and Technology cluster of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Alexander’s research goal is to facilitate software evolution by considering the social aspects of software development. His work tends to involve theories and methods both from within computer science (e.g., theory of socio-technical coordination; methods from natural language processing, machine learning) and from outside of computer science (e.g., organizational psychology). The underlying idea of his work is that of empiricism, i.e., that addressing software engineering challenges should be grounded in observation and experimentation and requires a combination of social and technical perspectives. Alexander has co-authored a book “Evolving Software Systems” (Springer Verlag, 2014), and more than 100 scientific papers and articles. He is actively involved in the organization of scientific conferences as a member and chair of steering committees, general chair, program committee chair, track chair, and program committee member. He has won multiple best paper and distinguished reviewer awards and is a member of the editorial board of several journals. Alexander is a senior member of IEEE and a member of ACM.
