About me

Christoph Reichenbach

Welcome to my personal home page!

I am a junior professor for Software Engineering and Programming Languages at the Institute for Informatics at Goethe University Frankfurt. Are you interested in programming languages technology or software engineering tools and would like to advance the state of the art in how software is developed and maintained? Please feel free to contact me as creichen at the usual Google mail server.

My current research interests include:

Software Consulting

I am interested in bringing software technology to practitioners and in applying it to real-life challenges. Feel free to contact me if you have a challenging software problem and could use a hand!


I served on the ECOOP 2015 programme committee.

Previously I worked in the software industry at a search company that has grown a bit beyond its initial goals, and at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, on parallelisable query languages for Java, as a postdoctoral fellow with Yannis Smaragdakis.

I completed my PhD on program metamorphosis at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2010. Program metamorphosis a novel technique for interactive multi-step program transformation with strong behaviour preservation guarantees and described in more detail here. This work was supervised by my advisor, Amer Diwan.
