Research Topics

My research focused on the development of secure and dependable distributed component-based applications for resource constrained systems. I work on security, dependability, software architectures, formalization, validation and verification as well as supporting reconfiguration and evolution:

  • Engineering secure and dependable systems
  • Making security manageable and understandable (organizational commitment, awareness and training)
  • Reconfiguration and evolution
  • Resource Constrained Systems
  • Pattern Based Software and System Engineering (PBSE)
  • Component Based Software Engineering (CBSE)
  • Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) and Model-Driven Development (MDD)
  • Formal methods
  • Evaluation and assurance methods
  • Development of tool-suite for modeling, formalization, composition, validation, verification and evaluation
