Welcome to my site

Occupation

I am a Lecturer at the Department of Informatics at King's College London (see what student's have to say). I am a member of the Software Modelling and Applied Logic (SMAL) group. I came here from Lancaster University, UK, where I was a Marie-Curie Fellow. Before that, I had been a PhD student and research associate with Technische Universität Dresden, Germany.

In 2007, I received my doctoral degree (Dr. rer. nat.) from Technische Universität Dresden, Germany. My doctoral thesis was in the area of non-functional properties of component-based systems and was awarded summa cum laude.

Whenever I am not sitting in front of the computer doing important research, I am most likely to be found a) in front of a book reading stories (well, anything, actually), or b) in rehearsals working on some new theatre play.

Current Projects and Activities

I am PI for KCL in the RELATE FP7 Marie-Curie Initial Training Network on model-driven approaches to service development in the Cloud.
