My research interests are focused on improving the quality of complex software-intensive systems. Currently, I am working on the modelling,
analysis, and certification of safety-critical embedded software. This is being carried out in conjunction with the OPENCOSS project and

Quality in Safety Critical Systems
What can be done to integrate safety into the software development process:
when eliciting system requirements?
during system design - Can the design enhance safety?
during programming – what techniques aid in writing safe code?
in the software development process that is followed?
Is there a specific software methodology that works well for safety critical systems?
Validation and Verification
Best practices for systems that are maintained over several years
