2019 Laureate Profile: Professor John Grundy
Professor John Grundy
Administering Organisation: Monash University
Discipline area: Engineering, Information and Computing Sciences
Fellowship project summary:
FL190100035: This project aims to find fundamentally new ways to capture and use human-centric software requirements during model-driven software engineering and verifying that systems meet these requirements. There are major issues with misaligned software applications in terms of accessibility, usability, emotions, personality, age, gender, and culture. This project aims to address these through new conceptual foundations and modelling techniques for their support during software engineering. The intended outcomes are enhanced theory, models, tools and capability for next-generation software engineering with these critical elements. Significant benefits are expected to include greatly improved software quality, developer productivity and cost savings.
Australian Research Council funding: $3,009,457
