Current focus

In December 2022 I defended my PhD thesis on lightweight consistency checking for advancing continuous model-based development in industry. I am now a biträdande lektor (associate senior lecturer/assistant professor) at the department of Innovation, Design, and Engineering (IDT) at Mälardalen University in Västerås, Sweden. I’m also a member of the Industrial Software Engineering group and the Automated Software Language and Software Engineering group. My broad interests are in software engineering, in particular in studies in close collaboration with industrial partners, for example through the software center initiative.

Specifically, we are interested in balancing the gains and efforts for modeling in systems and software engineering. How much (or how little) modeling do we need for a particular benefit? And how can we lower the initial barrier to modeling, providing early automated analysis even for not so great models? A consequent interest is how to evolve such early modeling settings to mature ones, in which many models are used and could be connected; how can we benefit most from doing so? What is needed to allow collaboration in modeling across domains?

In summary, we aim to support flexible and continuous model-based software and systems engineering in complex industrial settings.
