About my research
My research interest lies primarily on Information Systems (ISs) development. Within that area, I mainly focus on Business Process Modelling and Requirements Engineering approaches. Most of my work is related to the model-driven development paradigm (metamodelling, model transformations, notation design, etc.).
My PhD thesis (find it here) integrates two IS development methods:
Communication Analysis offers expressive modelling techniques, useful reasoning tools and a neat structure for requirements specifications. Therefore it is a suitable approach for the requirements elicitation stage of the integrated method.
The OO-Method proposes to model the computerised IS from a platform-independent viewpoint and it offers powerful model-to-code transformations. Therefore it is a suitable approach for the design and implementation stages of the integrated method.
We have developed a prototype tool that allows creating Communication Analysis requirements models and and automatically transform them into UML 2.0 Class Diagrams. We have used Eclipse (EMF+GMF) and ATL Transformation Language.
Other research interests are interface design, methodological quality, empirical software engineering and model transformations.
About my teaching
- We have offered several tutorials and keynotes that focus on a full model-driven development method, starting with a communication-oriented requirements engineering and business process modelling stage, following with an object-oriented conceptual modelling stage, and ending up with automatic multi-platform code generation.
- CAiSE 2012 (web), tutorial, along with Óscar Pastor (see slides).
- RCIS 2012 (web), tutorial, along with Arturo González (see slides).
- CLEI 2012 (web), tutorial, along with Marcela Ruiz.
