Professor of Mathematics of Software Engineering in the
School of Informatics of the
University of Edinburgh.
I have (moderate, developmental) prosopagnosia, meaning that I am poor at recognising faces. Please don't take offence if I fail to recognise you: I do it to close friends and family too.

My interests include aspects of software engineering and aspects of theoretical computer science. Especially, I am interested in software design: what good design is, how people do it, how and to what extent tools can help. In recent years I have mostly worked on mathematical aspects of model-driven development, especially bidirectional model transformations. My main affiliation is with the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science.
I would be happy to hear from strong prospective PhD students. You can find information about how to apply for a PhD (or MSc) place centrally. Here are some specific notes about studying with me. Please note in particular that I get a lot of emails asking for PhD places that look as though they could have been copied unchanged to hundreds of academics. I do not reply to these.
Note that my role in supervising the students above is not always "first supervisor", so do use my work, not theirs, to judge the scope of my interests!
We have no internships, and there are currently no vacancies for research fellows.
I occasionally undertake consultancy in areas relating to my research, especially software modelling.
I am a Personal Tutor. Information sheet.
I am MSc course organiser and (temporarily) Programme Director for the MSc in Cognitive Science.
