Biography

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) with the Education and Practice (EAP) section, the Centre for Computing Science Education research group, and the Formal Analysis, Theory and Algorithms (FATA) section. Until August 2020 I was a Research Fellow in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. I worked under Prof Dame Muffy Calder on the EPSRC programme grants S4: Science of Sensor Systems Software (2016 -- 2020), Populations: A populations approach to ubicomp systems design (2011 -- 2017), and the EPRSC projects VPS: Verifying Interoperability Requirements in Pervasive Systems (2011) and SIGNAL: Stochastic process algebra for biochemical signalling pathway analysis (2009 -- 2011). In 2008 I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from INPL (nowadays University of Lorraine) and INRIA Nancy-Grand Est, France.

Research interests

My expertise lies in Formal Methods, which are techniques for modelling complex systems as abstract mathematical entities amenable to a rigorous analysis of their properties. I am interested and working on Computing Education research on learning, teaching and scholarship about computer science curriculum and widening access to Higher Education in Computer Science and Software Engineering.

My core formal modelling and analysis research interests include quantitative automata, Markov models, process algebra, stochastic model checking, term and graph rewriting, interface automata.

I have worked on a range of interdisciplinary research projects encompassing areas such as: Computational Biology (biochemical networks, membrane systems), Communicating Systems (autonomous systems, vehicular networks, security protocols, sensor networks, smart water networks), Human Computer Interactions (user models, analytics for interactive systems), Computational Social Science.
