Research Interests

My current research involves continuing efforts with patterns related to Adaptive Object Modeling, Agile, Frameworks, and Security. My research focuses on building Enterprise Architectures that can scale and adapt to changing business environments and needs. I work in industry and with researchers to evaluate and document best practices. Many of my findings have been published via conference proceedings or on the web.

 In my daily work, I use .NET, Java, XML, C# with my team of developers. In addition to my work and research, I also provide training and consulting through The Refactory, Inc.

The Refactory has provided training to many Fortune 500 companies, including IBM, Motorola, Caterpillar, and Cisco. The training sessions typically focus on Design Patterns, Agile Principles, Refactoring, Testing, and Software Architecture.

Over the course of more than twenty years, I've been involved in a number of projects ranging from academic endeavors to large scale commercial applications. Throughout it all, I've attempted to document the results and my findings, either through papers or via websites I maintain, like www.adaptiveobjectmodel.com.

My Research Interests Include:

My Current Research:

    Frameworks have led me to work on patterns, which are a way of documenting design expertise. I have developed a framework for building visual languages to be use with business modeling. This project aimed at providing support for decision making during the business process.

    In my current work I'm interested in finding and describing the design patterns in visual languages and business modeling which has led to my work with Adaptive Object Models.
