Dipl.-Inf. Timea Illes-Seifert

Research Interests

My main focus is the optimization of the interface between test engineering and requirements engineering on both on process and on artefact level.

The overall goal is to develop effective and efficient methods for optimizing the process of the derivation of test cases from requirements and to achieve high quality test specifications and test automation.

I am member of the German Testing Board.
