Professor Dimitris Kolovos

I am a Professor of Software Engineering in the Automated Software Engineering Group of the Department of Computer Science at the University of York, where I research and teach model-driven and low-code software engineering.

Research Interests

I am best known for my work on model-driven and low-code software engineering. I have co-authored many highly-cited papers in the field, I sit on the program committees of leading international ACM/IEEE conferences in the area (ACM/IEEE MODELS and ACM SIGPLAN SLE), and I am an editor of Springer's Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM) journal. I am also an Eclipse Foundation committer, leading the development of the open-source Epsilon model-driven software engineering platform, which is used in companies such as Rolls-Royce, Bosch and IBM.

Beyond model-driven and low-code software engineering, I also have active research interests in topics related to data analytics, such as polyglot data persistence, and distributed and polyglot stream processing.

Looking for a PhD?

I am recruiting PhD candidates in the fields above. If you have strong object-oriented design and development skills and you would like to join a world-class research group in Britain's best place to live (a distance learning option is also available), please read on.

Industrial Collaboration

My team works closely with industry and we are currently involved in a £30M collaborative project with technology leaders in the UK aerospace industry such as Rolls-Royce, Altran and Leonardo, in Knowledge Transfer Partnerships with Rolls-Royce and IBM UK, in a Marie Curie Training network on low-code software engineering with collaborators such as BT and Amazon, and in an EPSRC-funded network with companies such as Smith and Nephew, Capgemini and Tata Consultancy Services.
