Research Interests

The focus of my research within our group is the specification and analysis of Self-Adaptive Software Systems. This specific class of systems observes itself and its environment and adapts itself in reaction to specific events.

In detail we identified a lack of specification methods and techniques in the early design of self-adaptive systems, especially in connection with UML-based modeling approaches. Therefore, we employ a UML use case based language, coined Adapt Case Modeling Language (ACML), that enables the explicit and separated specification of adaptation relevant aspects including the adaptation rules within a dedicated modeling view. Further, we define formal semantics for the ACML to enable the early quality assurance, i.e. the detection of self-adaptation related properties such as stability or deadlock freedom. The most important goal of this quality assurance approach is the complete transparency of formal assurance approaches (i.e. model checking) to the user.

In the context of this research activity, I am particularly interested in concern-specific modeling languages in general. Therefore, we presented and discussed the ACML approach at the Modeling (2012, 2013) and CMA (2012) Community, in particular concerning the composition and reuse of models.

For further information, please see our description on the research field Self-Adaptive Software Systems.

Besides, I am interested in End-User Development for Spreadsheets, where we developed a UML-based approach to model and execute type safe spreadsheet applications. Further, I am working on Model Change Management for Business Processes.
