Research Description

The central theme of my research is the design and implementation of programming languages together with their meta-level interface. Through the design of the meta-level interface, the investigation of tool support happens in tandem with the programming model and abstractions.

During my PhD research I applied such a research vision to deal with the effects engendered by partial failures in the development of applications running on mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). In order to support distributed programming in such a dynamic networks, I investigated leased-based programming abstractions. To support the development of MANET applications, I studied tool support in the form of distributed debugger. You can download my PhD dissertation here.

In collaboration with my students, I am currently investigating meta-level engineering languages and development tools for advanced computational platforms like cloud computing and internet of things.

Research Keywords: Programming language design and implementation, integrated software environments, reflection, object-oriented programming, concurrent and distributed programming models, secure programming technology, memory management, RFID programming, cross-platform software development, mobile and cloud computing, AmbientTalk.
