Andrea Zisman is a Professor in the Department of Computing, part of the School of Informatics at City University London, and a member of the Software Engineering research group in this department. Andrea holds a BSc degree in Computer Science (Catholic University of Pernambuco, Brazil, graduated Magna Cum Laude), a MSc degree in Applied Mathematics to Computer Science (University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, thesis received higher honours), and a PhD degree in Computer Science (Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine, London, UK).
Andrea's research interests lie in the areas of software and service engineering and automated support of distributed data. More specifically, she has been research active in the areas of service discovery, service adaptation, service composition, verification of multi-stakeholders distributed systems and service-based systems, consistency management and traceability of software artefacts, secure software engineering, and interoperability of distributed heterogeneous database systems. Her research has contributed to the development of a number of research prototypes and industrial tools. Andrea has been principal and co-investigators in various research projects including, the EU funded projects OPTIMIS (2010-2013), GREDIA (2006-2009), SECSE (2004-2008), PEPERS (2006-2009), and the network of excellence S-CUBE (2008-2012); EPSRC funded project Handling Inconsistencies in Distributed Software Engineering Documents (EPSRC research project, 2001-2002); and industrial funded projects NEVIS (funded by CSW Group Ltd, 2004), Requirements Traceability (funded by Philips Research Labs-UK, 2001-2002), Software traceability for Product Family Systems (2002-2006), Software Traceability for Agent-Oriented Systems (2002-2006), WAICENT Information Bus (funded by United Nations - FAO, 2002), and OpenModel Project (2003).
Andrea has served on the organisation and programme committees of several international conferences and workshops, and has acted as a reviewer for various international journals. She is the Programme Co-chair for FASE 2012. She is a member of the Programme Committees for ESEC/FSE 2013, FASE 2013, SEAMS 2013, ICSE 2012, FSE 2012, SEAMS 2012, ICSOC 2012, ASE 2012, MODELS 2012, and SECURECOMM 2012; and a member of the Programme Board for RE 2012. She was the Demonstrations Co-Chair for ICSE 2011 and ICSE 2010 . She was the Poster and Research Demos Co-Chair for RE 2009, and the chair for the mentoring program for RE 2010. She was the programme committee co-chair of the 20th IEEE International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2005). She has co-founded the International Workshop on Traceability in Emerging Forms of Requirements Engineering (TEFSE), the International Workshop on Service Oriented Software Engineering (IWSOSWE), and the International Workshop on Intelligent Technologies for Software Engineering (WITSE), and has been the Doctoral Symposium co-chair for ASE 2004, and Poster and Research Demo chair for RE 2004. She has co-edited special issues of journals in the area of software and service engineering, and has acted as a reviewer for several international journals.
Andrea has given tutorials and invited talks in several institutions and international conferences and
workshops, and has also taugh commercial courses in several organisations. She is a member of the ACM,
associated member of the IEE, a member of the
Requirements Engineering Specialist Group of the British Computer Society, and member of XML UK.
