Maryam Razavian










I am a Postdoc fellow at the VU University Amsterdam, department of computer science.  My PhD dissertation is on knowledge-driven migration to services and is funded by the NWO/Jacquard SAPIENSA projectThe dissertation is available for DOWNLOAD.

I have also participated in the European projects such as NoE S-Cube.

My research interests mainly are:

  1. Service Oriented Engineering
  2. Architectural Knowledge Management
  3. Design Reasoning
  4. Software Product Lines
  5. Software Architecture

Here are the list of my publications:
