Former Research Fellow

Dr. D. Paul Ralph, PhD (British Columbia), B.Sc. / B.Comm (Memorial), is an award-winning scientist, author, consultant, and Professor of Software Engineering at Dalhousie University. His cutting-edge research at the intersection of software engineering, human-computer interaction, and project management explores the relationship between software teams’ social dynamics and success. It has been used by many leading technology companies including Adobe, Amazon, AT&T, Canon, Bea Systems, IBM, Google, HP, Microsoft, Netflix, PayPal, Samsung, Salesforce, VMWare, Yahoo!, and Walmart. He has published more than 80 peer-reviewed articles in premier venues including IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering and the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering.

Dr. Ralph is editor-in-chief of the SIGSOFT Empirical Standards for Software Engineering Research, the comprehensive evidence standards for software engineering research. Dr. Ralph will visit the Weizenbaum-Institut to investigate strategies for improving research quality (including rigor, usefulness, replicability, and adherence to evidence standards) by leveraging breakthroughs in open science, philosophical realism, and evidence standards.
