I am currently looking for students interested in pursuing projects or theses closely related to my research project IAF-KISSA (Intentional Architectural Framework for Knowledge-Intensive Service Systems Architectures). This involves understanding the domain of knowledge-intensive service systems, learning how to model KISS using various modeling languages (e.g., UML/SysML, URN, Systems Dynamics Modeling), and conducting computational or empirical studies.
I am also open to supervising students wanting to pursue their own projects in the area of service science, management, engineering or design. The application domains of particular interest to me are knowledge-intensive business service engagements (e,g., R&D, outsourcing, engineering services), and healthcare.
I can supervise or co-supervise in the following programs at the University of Ottawa:
MSc in Management
