Currently Andreas heads the department “Data Engineering” formerly known as “Measurement, Prediction, and Empiricism” at the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE) in Kaiserslautern, Germany. He received his M.S. degree (Diplom, 1994) and PhD (Dr.-Ing., 2009) in Computer Science from the University of Kaiserslautern. After working as an IT-consultant he joined Fraunhofer IESE in 2000. He worked as a business area manager in the area of software development, and was responsible for the coordination of Fraunhofer IESE’s activities addressing the European Commission, in addition he worked as a project manager and scientist.
His research interest is empirically based decision support where he has published several papers. For example, Andreas published guidelines for reporting controlled experiments in software engineering (SE), thus providing one starting point for the adoption of the evidence-based SE paradigm. Dr. Jedlitschka is member of several Program Committees for international Conferences (e.g., ESEM, PROFES). In addition, he chairs CESI@ICSE2016 and is Program Co-Chair of ESEM2016 and PROFES2016.
He is heading the office of the International Software Engineering Research Network (ISERN).
In addition he co-founded and is the chair of the Workshop Series on Empirical Software Engineering. He had leading roles in European projects under FP5 (ESERNET), FP6 (EMERGE, VIDE, ReDSeeDS), and under FP7 (OASIS, AALIANCE, MUNDUS) and AAL (ROSETTA) and acted as a external expert for the European Commission.
