Malvina Latifaj, Doctoral student

Malvina Latifaj is a Ph.D. student of computer science with a focus on model-driven engineering at Malardalen University, Vasteras, since June 2020. She received her B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Tirana in 2018, and her M.Sc degree in computer science with a specialization in software engineering within the Erasmus + ICM program, a joint double degree program between the Malardalen University, Sweden and Polytechnic University of Tirana, Albania in 2020.

She is a course assistant in the following courses: 
  • DVA444: Industrial Systems in Cloud Computing
  • CDT402: Distributed Software Development

Her research interests include model-driven engineering (MDE) with a focus on blended modeling. That includes the definition of higher-order model transformations(HOTs) to semi-automatically generate the synchronization infrastructure between the different syntaxes.
