About me

I am currently a researcher and post doctoral researcher at the WISE lab of the Computer Science department of the Faculty of Science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. I have my PhD degree from WISE in June 2013, the title of my PhD is The Feature Assembly Approach for Modelling & Knowledge Management of Software Variability. Before this I obtained my master in computer science from the WISE lab in 2006. I'm currently working on the VariBru research project  (since November 2007) where my main role is to enable better representation and information management of variability in variable software. In particular using conceptual modelling and knowledge management techniques to support the variability modelling practice for the current large scale and complex software.
My research intrests include:
  • Software Variability
  • Feature Models
  • Conceptual Modelling
  • Ontology Engineering
  • Ontology Reasoning
  • Software as a service 
  • Semantic Web
  • Adaptation and Personalization in (Semantic) Web applications
  • Data interoperability in WIS
  • Data Mining and Knowledge Extraction
