Research and publications:

My research has been in the fields of IS analysis, conceptual modelling, and requirements engineering, software reuse, and semantic interoperability. I have been involved in the EU-projects TEMPORA, REBOOT, INTEROP, and CESAR. I have been manager of two national research projects, WISEMOD and REQSEC, both funded by the Norwegian Research Council. My current research mainly focusses on early stage requirements methods for safety and security, especially addressed in CESAR and REQSEC. For my publications, see a full bibliography.
