I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computing and Software (CAS) of the Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University, Canada.

My research is situated under the broader umbrella of systems engineering, with a particular interest in sustainable and circular systems engineering by and for digital accelerators, such as digital twins and the digital thread.
I maintain additional lines of research in select topics in modeling and simulation, including modeling and simulation of cyber-biophysical systems, automated simulator engineering, collaborative modeling, consistency management, and model transformations.
I have open positions for these topics at all academic levels. Have a look at the recommended topics, or reach out to me and suggest your own.

Previously, I spent 2.5 fantastic years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO) of University of Montréal, Canada, with Prof. Eugene Syriani and Prof. Houari Sahraoui; and before that, some time as a postdoc in the Software and Sustainability group of the Vrije Universiteit 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 inconsistency management in complex multi-paradigm engineering settings with Prof. Hans Vangheluwe. During my Master’s years, I worked on reactive and streaming model transformations, and complex event processing with the VIATRA/IncQuery team at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, headed by Prof. Daniel Varro.

My academic background includes teaching experience both at the graduate and undergraduate levels, in multiple countries and systems. I am a dedicated servant of my communities: a frequent reviewer for top journals and organizer of important scientific events.

I’m also active outside of academia, mainly in innovation consulting. During my sabbatical, I served as the Head of Innovation for a multinational quality engineering corporation. Previously, I have worked for several service-oriented companies as a software engineer.
