Personal profile

Research interests

  • Domain Specific Languages and Software Language Engineering - Research on Systematic Approaches for Software Language Engineering, namely Domain Engineering and Language Quality evaluation. This work has led already to several publications (book chapter, and conferences)
  • Model-Driven Development and Cyber-Physical Systems Modeling - One of the challenges of MDD is to build (efficient) Model Transformation tools, adequate to the specific purpose of the transformation, with guarantees that certain properties hold in the transformation process. For this purpose, we use Verification and Validation techniques (Model Based Checking and Testing). We have developed a Model-Transformation tool (and language) which was designed to assure termination and confluence of transformations. I'm interested in Multi-paradigm modelling of complex cyber-physical systems and their simulation;
  • Applied Computing - Intervention areas: Visual Query Languages for High Energy Physics Computing; Software Games; Robotics/Domotics aka Home Automation; SmartCities and Energy Efficiency, Spreadsheet modeling for tax authorities.
