I am currently working on the OPENCOSS FP7 project, where I am developing a common language for certification, which will inform the reuse of assurance assets within and across the aerospace, railway and automotive domains. I am also working with Rolls-Royce plc to define requirements processes and techniques for safety-critical software systems.
Previous projects include the Rolls-Royce funded University Technology Centre in Systems and Software Engineering, in which - among other things - I developed tailored NLP-based techniques for automated quality checking of requirements documents for aerospace control systems. I also worked in the MoD-funded Software Systems Engineering Initiative, in which I was the York project manager and also developed assurance information systems, based on techniques pioneered at York.
I am also the editor of the Goal Structuring Notation (GSN) Community Standard, which can be downloaded here.
Oh yes - and I still edit Old Norse-Icelandic Poetry, when I'm not singing!
