My main interests are in services (telecommunications, web services, SoA), policies and workflows. These have relevance in context sensitive systems as well as large software systems supporting businesses which often are complex legacy systems and Internet of Things applications. I am particularly interested in 3 main strands: (1) Dynamic Workflow Adaptation: How can business processes be modelled and automated in way that allows for flexible run-time adaption to environmental changes? (2) Policy Conflict/ Feature Interaction: How can we deal with conflicting policies -- that is how can we detect that policies require conflicting actions and how can this be resolved at runtime? (3) Service Selection: How can we select the most appropriate services for a user in a given context?
