My research focuses on the development of complex software-intensive systems, particularly in software architecture and model-driven development. My recent work includes exploring trustworthiness in autonomous systems, analyzing digital twin architectures, and architecting ML-enabled systems. I have (co-)authored numerous publications in prestigious journals like ACM Computing Surveys, and the Journal of Systems and Software. Currently, I continue to investigate innovative approaches to enhance the efficiency and reliability of software development in various domains, including automotive, manufacturing, and AI integration.
