I am a Professor of Software Engineering in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York, where I research and teach automated and model-based software engineering. I am also an Eclipse Foundation committer, leading the development of the open-source Epsilon model-based engineering platform under the Eclipse Modelling project, and an associate editor of the IET Software journal.
