The problem of engineering dependable software-intensive systems will not go away – it will only become more pressing, as today’s distributed systems are characterized by heterogeneity, are spatially-distributed and are expected to satisfy non-functional requirements such as security and privacy. It is clear that if we are going to use ad-hoc methods, we’ll end up with ad-hoc problems. We need techniques for early validation at design time and for tackling uncertainty manifested at runtime.
I am university assistant at the Distibuted Systems Group at TU Vienna (chair prof. Schahram Dustdar). Previously, I was post-doctoral researcher at Politecnico di Milano, where I received (2017) my PhD defending a thesis entitled "Modelling and Verification of Evolving Cyber-Physical Spaces". My advisor was prof. Carlo Ghezzi. My research interests lie in the intersection of distributed systems and software engineering, and include security and privacy in self-adaptive and cyber-physical systems, requirements engineering and formal verification.
