My research is centered around how to manage platform dependencies and platform variation within the scope of model-driven software product lines. My PhD thesis was titled “Platform Ontologies for the Model Driven Architecture.” I've previously worked on the SEESCOA, CoDAMoS and VariBru projects, which dealt with software engineering for embedded systems, context-driven adaption in ambient intelligence (AmI) systems, and Software Variability, respectively. A collection of MDE Case Studies has grown out of this, and plays a central role to this day to validate my research. I am currently working on Explicit Management of Platform Variability, which takes the concept of platform ontologies to a broader scope.

I've studied at the University of Twente in the Netherlands from 1996 to 2002, and have done my MSc. project with the TRESE Group. Afterwards, I moved to Belgium as a PhD student at the System and Software Engineering Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. I received my PhD title in 2008.
From 2008 to 2012, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Software Languages Lab at the same university. My research interests are model-driven engineering and using knowledge-based techniques in the field of software engineering. My research expertise is on Platform Variability and platform dependency management.
