- Research focus:
- My primary area of research is model-driven development
(MDD). MDD research aims to reduce the significant effort
currently associated with developing and analyzing large
software-intensive systems through the use of modeling languages
that provide powerful abstractions, and technologies for
manipulating models. Models are created for a variety of
purposes, for example, to support formal analysis of functional,
security or performance properties, and to support automated
generation of testing, implementation, or deployment artifacts.
My research group at CSU focuses on (1) compositional approaches
to model-driven software development, (2) managing model
evolution, (3) rigorous analysis of software properties using
models, (4) use of models to support runtime adaptation of
software (models@runtime), (5) model-based development of
software-product lines, and (6) domain-specific modeling
languages and metamodeling.
