I am Lecturer in Computer Science in Aston University (since May 2013). Before joining Aston, I was a Marie Curie Fellow at INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt , France (May 2011- May 2013) under the  EU Marie-Curie Fellowship (Grant) called Requirements@run.time: Requirements-aware Systems. I am also a Visiting Researcher at Lancaster University (May 2011 – May 2015). Before, I was lecturer and researcher in the Computing School at the Universidad Central de Venezuela. More info can be found at www.nellybencomo.me 

Research interests

I am interested in all aspects of software modelling and specially the application of model-driven techniques, during the development and operation of self-adaptive systems. I am particularly interested in what I call models@run.time, the use of models and model-driven techniques during runtime. Specific topics:

  • self-adaptive and autonomic systems
  • decision-making, uncertainty
  • models@run.time
  • model-driven engineering
