Ben van Gameren

Ben van Gameren is a PhD candidate at the Delft University of Technology. In October 2009 he became part the Software Engineering Research Group of the faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. In 2004 Ben started with the Bachelor Technical Informatics at the Technical University in Delft from which he graduated in 2007. In the final project of the Bachelor of Technical Informatics he and three other students developed a web-based program which helps to standardize purchasing data, called Spidre. After successfully completing the Bachelor of Technical Informatics Ben started the Master of Science study program of Computer Science, also at the Technical University in Delft, from which he graduated in 2009. In the Master Project he did to finish the study, he researched the advantages and challenges of combining the agile and distributed development approaches and how technological support is best applied to deal with these. This Master Project was carried out in close collaboration with Kevin Dullemond and was supervised by Rini van Solingen and Arie van Deursen. During this research project a 'knowledge group' was set up to discuss the concepts identified during the research and to help to develop new ideas. This 'knowledge group' consisted of five Dutch Software Engineering companies: Exact Software, IHomer, Mavim, SDL Tridion and Xebia. The Master Project resulted in a Master thesis and a publication in the proceedings of the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Global Software Engineering.

Following the master of Computer Science Ben decided to continue his academic career by becoming a PhD candidate. As a PhD candidate Ben will continue the interesting and promising line of research conducted during the Master Project. However, instead of focusing on aspects of agile software development the research will now focus on restoring the awareness in distributed teams: the knowledge about the work-context necessary for coordinating actions, managing coupling, discussing tasks, anticipating others' actions, and finding help. The project in which this research is carried out is called: The ASPIC Project. During this research Ben will again collaborate with Kevin Dullemond and be supervised by Rini van Solingen and Arie van Deursen.
