I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computing and Software of the Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University, Canada, where I lead the Sustainable Systems and Methods Lab (SSM).

My research is situated under the broader umbrella of systems engineering, with a particular interest in sustainable systems engineering by and for advanced digital technology, such as digital twins.
I maintain additional lines of research in select topics in modeling and simulation, including modeling and simulation of cyber-(bio)physical systems, automated simulator engineering by machine learning, collaborative modeling, and model consistency in heterogeneous engineering settings.

Previously, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at University of Montréal, Canada, with Prof. Eugene Syriani and Prof. Houari Sahraoui; and in the Software and Sustainability group at VU Amsterdam, the Netherlands with Prof. Ivano Malavolta. I received my PhD in Computer Science in 2019 from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, for my work on model consistency management in multi-paradigm settings with Prof. Hans Vangheluwe. During my Master’s, I worked on streaming model transformations by complex event processing with the VIATRA/IncQuery team at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, headed by Prof. Daniel Varro.

I’m active outside of academia as well, mainly in innovation consulting. I served in multiple management and technical roles, most recently as the Head of Innovation for a multinational quality engineering corporation.
