I am a postdoctoral researcher in the GEODES Software Engineering Research Group of the University of Montréal, Canada.
My work focuses on the engineering of digital twins for cyber-biophysical systems and the automated inference of simulation models of digital twins by reinforcement learning. In 2021, I have received the prestigious IVADO Postdoctoral Research Scholarship in support of my research. I maintain an active research line in collaborative and multi-level/multi-paradigm modeling, with a special focus on real-time collaboration.
I work closely with Prof. Eugene Syriani and Prof. Houari Sahraoui.

I have received a PhD in Computer Science in 2019 from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, while working in the Antwerp Systems and Software Modelling (AnSyMo) research group. My research was focusing on inconsistency management in complex heterogeneous engineering settings, enabled by multi-paradigm modeling (MPM).
Previously, I have 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 frequent reviewer for different journals and conferences.

I’m also active outside of academia, mainly in innovation consulting. During my sabbatical, I have 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.
