Julieth Castellanos is an associated senior lecturer and researcher in systems of systems safety. In particular, Julieth researches analysis techniques, strategies, and processes that make it possible to provide safety by design to safety- and mission-critical systems and infrastructures.
Julieth was a doctoral student at the Division of Software Engineering at Mälardalen University under the supervision of Barbara Gallina and Faiz Ul Muram. Julieth presented her licentiate thesis called "Facilitating Automated Compliance Checking of Processes against Safety Standards" in March 2019. She also defended her doctoral dissertation called "A Safety-centered Planning-time Framework for Automated Process Compliance Checking" in September 2021. In addition, Julieth has a specialization in Software Engineering from Universidad Distrital Franciso José de Caldas in Bogotá (Colombia), a one-year Master in Computer Science from Malmö University, and a two-year Master in Software Engineering from Mälardalen University. She received her bachelor's degree in Computer Systems Engineering from Universidad Industrial de Santander (UIS) in Bucaramanga, Colombia.
Julieth is also interested in studying industry standards, the interplay between different concerns tacked by the regulatory perspective (e.g., safety, security, cybersecurity, risk management, process improvement, and quality), and compliance management (i.e., strategies for managing -creation and reuse- normative and compliance artifacts from both the process and the product perspective.
Preliminary work contributed to the AMASS project, an EU-ECSEL funded project whose ultimate goal is to lower certification costs for Cyber-Physical Systems.
