I am a postdoctoral researcher in the GEODES Software Engineering Research Group of the University of Montréal, Canada, with Prof. Eugene Syriani.
My work is focusing on collaborative and multi-view modeling, and process optimization.

I am a Scientific Collaborator for the Software and Sustainability (S2) research group of the Free University of Amsterdam (Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam – VU), The Netherlands, working with Prof. Ivano Malavolta.

I have received a PhD in Computer Science in 2019 from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, while working in the Modelling, Simulation and Design Lab (MSDL) of the Antwerp Systems and Software Modelling (AnSyMo) research group, with Prof. Hans Vangheluwe. 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 on 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.
