As a Research Engineer in the NECSIS network I work as an intermediary between the network research groups and the industrial partners. My responsibilities include the following:

  1. Facilitating knowledge transfer about professional software development practices and state-of-the-practice in tooling and technology between network research groups and the industrial partners.
  2. Developing the NECSIS Toolset comprised of tools developed by network members.
    Assisting with technology transfer-related interaction with GM and IBM, including packaging, adjusting GM’s processes, and extending IBM’s tool chain.
    Developing and maintaining the tooling architecture and implementing selected parts of the tooling.
    Helping make the tooling available as open source, including documentation, and nurturing the user community.
    Mentoring students who are implementing parts of the tooling and maintaining the overall quality of the tooling.
    Working with the project leads to identify promising approaches that crosscut themes and integrating them into a coherent NECSIS toolset.
  3. Fulfilling the outreach goals of the network: growing open-source communities and co-organizing conference workshops and other dissemination activities.
  4. Fulfilling educational aspects: presenting both research results and state-of-the-art to network members; mentoring network members about open-source community building; developing tutorials and running workshops for the industrial partners and the automotive software community.
  5. Participating in global initiatives to develop standards for automotive software and in other related standardization efforts (such as Common Variability Language (CVL)).
