Professional Activities

In the fall of 2005, I started my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Ottawa under the supervision of Daniel Amyot. Many years earlier, I studied as an undergraduate at the Technische Universität Graz in Austria, and received a MSc in Computer Science from Simon Fraser University in 1999. In the same year, I taught second year undergraduate courses in software engineering at Simon Fraser University. After spending almost two years in industry as a research engineer with Strategic Technology at Mitel Networks, I flung a backpack on my shoulders and donned the suit of my alter ego, the traveler, for a three-year travel adventure. Upon my return, I worked as a research engineer with Daniel Amyot and Murray Woodside in the six months leading up to my PhD studies. During the second half of my PhD studies, I taught a third year undergraduate course in software requirements analysis at the University of Ottawa. I completed my PhD studies on the Aspect-oriented User Requirements Notation in the fall of 2010. From the beginning of 2011 to mid 2013, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow with Dorina Petriu at Carleton University, Jörg Kienzle at McGill University, and Daniel Amyot at the University of Ottawa. In August 2013, I joined the Department of Electrial and Computer Engineering at McGill University where I now hold the position of associate professor.
