Federico Ciccozzi, Associate Professor, Docent, Head of Research Education

I'm currently Associate Professor in Computer Science at Mälardalen University, department of Innovation, Design and Engineering in Västerås - Sweden.

I am the Head of Research Education in Computer Science and in Electronics at Mälardalen University.

I received a M.Sc. in Global Software Engineering within the Global Software Engineering European Master (GSEEM) program, a joint double-degree master program between the universities of Mälardalen-Sweden, L'Aquila-Italy (my home university), and Amsterdam-Netherlands. I received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Mälardalen University in January 2014. I have received the promotion to Docent (Associate Prof.) in Computer Science in October 2017.

My research area conceives several aspects of automated software engineering for the design and production of complex multi-domain and safety-critical systems. Among them, I specialise in: definition of domain-specific software (modelling) languages, model manipulation through transformations for vertical integration of IT artefacts, model optimization, model-based program optimisation, and automatic generation of various artefacts from models, to mention a few.

I conduct research in the area of multi-paradigm and multi-view modelling as well as model transformation for enabling modelling and automated code generation for heterogeneous multi-domain systems such as cyber-physical systems (CPS), internet-of-things (IoT), and mobile robot teams. I work on infrastructural support for design and production of complex multi-domain systems in terms of: blended graphical--textual modelling, model consistency and versioning including (co)evolution and synchronization.
