Haifa Research Lab, Mount Carmel, Haifa 31905, Israel
I joined the Decision Analytics group (formerly known as the Business Transformation & Architecture Technologies group) at the IBM Research Lab in Haifa in August 2010. Until the summer of 2013, I was the coordinator of the ACSI project, a 3-year EU STREP project, which had an extraordinary outcome, developing an innovative platform for service interoperation. The platform is now freely accessible (open source) through source forge in the name of BizArtifact
Currently my research activities are split between two efforts. The first focuses on identifying of features in systems that may promote more effective decisions in the context of multi-objective problems. The second is on designing a unique semantic integration platform in the context of systems engineering.
I hold a B.Sc. degree in Industrial Engineering and Management with a major in Information Systems, an M.Sc. degree in Information System Engineering, both from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, and a Ph.D. degree in Management Information Systems from the University of British Columbia, Canada.
My doctoral research is in the domain of Business Controls and its integration with systems analysis and design. In general, my research interests are in the areas of systems analysis and design, conceptual modeling, ontological applications to information systems, and software engineering. Recently, I have also been involved in exploring interactive aspects of human decision making.
