My current research work focuses on the design of real-time databases and data management systems, especially on the application of formal methods in order to ensure various important properties, such as data consistency and temporala correctness. The formal methods applied so far in my research include exhaustive model checking, statistical model checking, and satisfiability solving.
More detailed work include: systematic specification of data aggregation processes, formal specification and analysis of transactional properties, and systematic design of real-time transaction-based systems.
SAFARE(SAt-based Feature-oriented dAta aggREgation design) is a tool for the specification and analysis of data aggregation processes, based on our proposed taxonomy DAGGTAX. The tool mplements a graphical user interface for the DAGGTAX-based specication, and automatically transforms the specications, and design constraints supplied by domain experts, into propositional logic formulas, which are veried by the integrated Microsoft Z3 Theorem Prover.
