Syriani, Eugène


I am currently an assistant professor in Computer Science at the University of Montreal. I am a member of the GEODES Software Engineering Research Group. I teach bachelor, masters and doctoral level courses in software engineering. I serve on the program committee and organize several international conferences and workshops. I am also a reviewer for journals in modeling and simulation.

I was formerly an assistant professor at the University of Alabama until 2014. I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2011 and hold B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science since 2006, both at McGill University. Affiliated to McGill, I also pursued postdoctoral research on model transformation in the Canada-wide NECSIS project on model-driven engineering for automotive systems.

I have also worked as a software engineer in software companies in Montreal for a decade.

Research expertise

My main research interests are in model-based design, in particular model transformation design and verification, model-driven methodology, simulation-based design, and application of MDE in non-computer science domains.
