Doctoral students: Inna Švartsman
Topics and Competences
The research group carries out interdisciplinary research work at the intersection of software engineering, agent technologies, information systems, social sciences, and psychology. In particular, we apply the methodology called agent-oriented modeling (AOM) to the modeling, simulation, and prototyping of complex sociotechnical systems, such as systems for e-governance, smart cities and smart communities, crisis management and resilience, information fusion, as well as to the simulation of real-world social phenomena.
In 2017 the most significant research results were: development of an agile software engineering methodology for supporting the integration projects of information systems, enhancing the practices of agile software engineering by combining goal models of AOM with user stories, development, in collaboration with Boeing Digital Aviation and Analytics Lab in Frankfurt, Germany, computer-based simulations of how well psychological profiles of airline employees performing different roles facilitate or hinder cooperation between them, and designing, in collaboration with the University of Tartu, a simulation environment for studying the dynamics of the Estonian language environment.
