I'm Marvin Wyrich

Software Engineering Researcher at the University of Stuttgart, Germany.

About me

I'm a PhD candidate doing research on the conduct of reliable and valid code comprehension experiments. I love doing research with and for humans, that's why my work is often at the intersection between psychology and empirical software engineering. Since I believe that research doesn't end with the publication of a paper and that research papers are not necessarily written for non-scientists, I recently started a YouTube channel to communicate scientific findings back to software engineers. Oh, and I love sports, especially table tennis 🏓 and running 🏃.

Highlighted projects


I am proud of two awards that underline that what I do, I do very well. First, I won the Fujitsu Next Agile IT Award for my bachelor thesis on capturing and summarizing activities in a Scrum team and second, we won the best paper award at the ESEM conference 2020 for the validation of a code comprehensibility metric that is already being used in practice through its integration with SonarQube.
