Research overview

My current research interests are in service-oriented computing and reuse-driven software engineering. I am particularly interested in self-managing/self-configuring service and cloud frameworks for resource-constrained systems. As part of this research we have developed runtime frameworks for supporting fault-tolerance and for ensuring runtime QoS in embedded service-based systems. We are currently integrating the various frameworks into a self-managing platform for embedded service-oriented systems. My other interests are in software architecture and scrapheap software engineering. We are developing smart process-pluggable tools for architecture analysis and exploring ways of supporting the development of systems from discarded/scrapped software systems.
