Dr Damian Arellanes

Lecturer in Computer Science

Research overview

My core research focuses on the area of distributed systems and, more specifically, on software models for the compositional construction of autonomous systems in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). I have a strong interest in the theoretical aspects that enable self-* properties (e.g., self-healing, self-optimisation, self-reconfiguration, etc.) for the construction of collective adaptive systems. These theoretical aspects are grounded in philosophy and are ultimately relevant for building complex IoT applications in diverse domains (e.g., Smart Cities, Smart Homes and Connected Health).

PhD supervision

I welcome PhD proposals in the areas of: (i) Program Synthesis, (i) Autonomous/Self-Adaptive Software Systems, (iii) Internet of Things, (iv) Model-Driven Development (MDD) and (v) Service-Oriented Computing. Please email me your CV, academic transcripts and a research proposal (2 pages).
