Irfan got his bachelor degree in Computer Science at Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2011 he graduated as M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from University of Sarajevo. After graduation he has started his PhD studies at Mälardalen University in 2012. In 2015 he defended his Licentiate thesis at Mälardalen University with the title "Facilitating Reuse of Safety Case Artefacts Using Safety Contracts". In 2018 he defended his PhD thesis at Mälardalen University titled "Assurance Aware Contract-based Design for Safety-critical Systems".
Irfan participated in teaching within the following courses at Mälardalen University:
Irfan acted as reviewer in the following conferences and journals:
He also acts as a pc committee member in SASSUR – International Workshop on Next Generation of System Assurance Approaches for Safety-Critical Systems
Irfan participated in organisation of the following conferences:
My PhD research focused on developing a notion of safety contracts and related reasoning that supports the reuse of software components in and across safety- critical systems. Most of the safety-critical systems need to be certified according to a domain-specific standard (e.g., ISO26262 for automotive, DO178C for avionics etc.). One part of the certification is a safety case in form of an explained and well-founded structured argument showing that the system is acceptably safe to operate. Since certification is becoming more expensive and time-consuming, we aim at supporting reuse of certification related information together with components by using the contract reasoning.
Currently, I am doing research in safety-critical systems assurance in several European and National research projects.
My research interests include:
• Safety-relevant embedded systems
• Component-based software engineering for embedded systems
• Contract-based approaches for embedded systems
• Safety assurance
• Artificial Intelligence
• Autonomous systems.
