My interests lie broadly in the software engineering of sociotechnical systems, social computing, and multiagent systems. Specific themes of interest include interaction protocols, commitments and other kinds of norms among actors, trust, and argumentation. My work is potentially a foundation for social computing and social informatics.
I am an Associate Editor for ACM Transactions on Internet Technology (TOIT). I am a Sponsorship Chair for the 12th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS 2013). I served on the Senior Program Committee for AAMAS 2011. I have organized workshops on agent communication, social computing, and norms in multiagent systems. I edited a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology. I will host a Dagstuhl seminar on Normative Multiagent Systems.
I am interested in understanding and modeling interaction among autonomous social actors, such as organizations and people. I have developed significant insights and results, which I am currently applying to the software engineering of sociotechnical systems. My work has been funded by European grants and is well-recognized by my peers. My current focus is on further developing the concepts, principles, methodologies, specifications, and platforms for sociotechnical systems for broader impact.
