Biography

Sadaf Mustafiz is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at Ryerson University. She received her Ph.D. and M.Sc in Computer Science from McGill University. Following her Ph.D., she joined the NECSIS research group as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Modelling, Simulation, and Design Lab at McGill University. NECSIS (Network for the Engineering of Complex Software-Intensive Systems for Automotive Systems) was a university-industry research collaboration between eight Canadian software engineering institutions and three industrial partners (GM Canada, IBM Canada, Malina Software). Sadaf also worked as a Research Associate at Concordia University within the MAGIC (Modelling and Automatic Generation of Information for Creation, Configuration and Control of Highly Available Services) NSERC/Ericsson Industrial Research Chair in Model-Based Software Management. Her research interests are primarily in the area of Model-Driven Software Engineering.

Research interests
