PhD (Ottawa Univ), ing. (OIQ)
I am a Full Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science, Concordia University.
My research focuses on the opportunities at the intersection of Software Engineering and Data Analytics. I am particularly interested in approaches that harness the wealth of information in software traces and logs (also known as machine data), using data analytics and modeling techniques, to support software development and operations, software evolution and analytics, security monitoring, process analysis, and operational intelligence tasks.
My research has an industrial focus. Over the years, I have led many research and development projects with various organizations including Ericsson, CAE, Ubisoft, Marivent, Opal-RT, and DRDC (Defence R&D Canada).
I also have a keen interest in the business side of technology and digital transformation. I have played leading role in the development of OCEB2 (OMG-Certified Expert in BPM) and OCUP2 (OMG Certified UML Professional) certificaton programs. I am currently an active governance board member of ITACS BTM Forum, a leader in digital transformation.
