I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Auckland in Auckland, New Zealand.

My main research interest is in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) with applications in the following areas:

  • Real-Time Systems
  • Biological Emulation
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems
  • Industrial Automation
  • I am currently heading the Precision Timed Systems research group and the Bio Emulation Research Group. We have created a tool-chin for the design of automation and embedded systems using the IEC61499 standard. The tool and associated benchmarks are available for download from The TimeMe website.

    I co-founded APIMatic with two of my PhD students, Adeel Ali and Zeeshan Bhatti. APIMatic is a cloud services company for automatic SDK generation using the model-driven approach. I am also working with a group of my students for a model driven engineering tool for Internet of Things (IoT) IoT Commercialisation.

    I have co-authored two research monographs:

    Model-Driven Design Using IEC 61499: A Synchronous Approach for Embedded and Automation Systems (2015)

    Correct-by-Construction Approaches for SoC Design (2013)

    Recent publications are available from: The Precision Timed Systems Group for publications related to real-time embedded systems and and the Bio Emulation Group for publications related to cyber-physical systems in medicine respectively.
