The main aim of the Software Engineering at Aston (SEA) research group is to enable organisations to create and maintain better software, better.
We develop concepts, theories and tools to construct systems that solve our problems reliably in the face of ever increasing complexity and uncertainty. Our main approach is to increase the level of abstraction at which software systems operate, bringing them closer to the problems to be solved. Our research has been applied to web engineering, service-oriented architectures, digital health systems and high-integrity systems engineering, among other areas.
Tony is working on the XModeler meta-tool for language-based Software Engineering and the application of actor-based languages to complex system understanding through simulation and analysis.
