Collaborating with Industry

We welcome all industry partners who seek practicable and pragmatic solutions. Together we can make great progress in creating new knowledge and making great impact. Industry? Come and work with us.

 

Release Engineering.

My 3 years’ experience as a source code Integrator and Release Manager within a large North American company, devoted to online payment, brings a solid understanding of new challenges faced by modern companies practicing parallel development and continuous integration. For instance, we have implemented mechanisms (both technical and organizational) to move from a 2 months software release to a daily releases of complex software products. We can reuse what we learn in this industrial environment as well as fruitful interactions with release managers of large companies such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Firefox, and others.     
 

Process Modelling & Improvement.

This was and is still my main research interest including Software Process Modelling, Measurement, Analysis, and identification of potential improvements. We focus on software process modelling and visualization supported by my tool DSL4SPM. So far, we have addressed four modeling perspectives: (1) Activity-Oriented emphasizing the workflow of software development activities, roles, artifacts and guidelines; (2) Knowledge-Oriented representing the flows of knowledge within process models; (3) Alignment-Oriented seeking to link process models activities with a body of best practices such as CMMI; (4) Simulation-Oriented based using Monte Carlo method for a "What-if" Analysis. All these modelling perspectives are integrated to allow analysis of process models from at process models from different point of view.
 

e-Health.

We have started recently a new area of research trying to improve the human being. The first project focuses on algorithms to control glucemia for people living with Type 1 diabetes (T1D). Although T1D is a serious and difficult disease, people with T1D need to lead full and active lives by an effective control of their glycaemia. We are driving research to improve the technology for people with T1D using insulin pump to monitor blood sugar levels and provide recommendations to deliver the proper doses of insulin. The second project supervises a developement of  mobile application which strives the diagnose of liver stiffness using a fibroscan developed by Echosens.
