My research addresses the practical problems associated with building and maintaining self-managing (adaptive) systems by combining rigorous formal techniques with concrete implementations and applications of those techniques. I completed my PhD at Imperial College London, UK in 2005, prior to which I worked as a senior software engineer at Sapient Corporation, USA.
During my career I have published over 80 peer-reviewed papers which include 4 that won Best Paper awards. My teaching spans across undergraduate and postgraduate curricula, specialising in software engineering and cyber security. I am also an investigator on externally funded research projects (totalling >£6M) and was a member of the team that won the IET Innovation Award in Cyber Security (in 2017).
