[1] Integrating AIs into model-based intelligent maintenance:
Research Interests My research interests lie in the field of system dependability analysis, safe AI, machine learning, reliability centred maintenance (RCM) and intelligent maintenance. I am also interested in model-driving engineering (MDE), automated model transformations and its validation and verification.

Most recently I have become interested in integrating state-of-the-art AI, IoT, Big Data, Blockchain and Digital Twins into the model-based dependability analysis field to obtain an intelligent dependability analysis and maintenance of systems.
