About me and my research

picslingerMy research (my publications) is directed at strategies of software companies to obtain and retain customers. At present I am exploring two things:

1) The possibilities for a feedback management framework that supports the lifecycle of a component and manages relationships between the component and its environment.

2) The possibilities offered by software ecosystems.

My PhD research was directed at integrating and centrally storing knowledge about software to ease software release and delivery. The areas I am researching are software configuration management, component technologies, feature description languages, client server architectures and product data management.Please see the Pheme page for more information.
