Felicien Ihirwe, PhD

My name is Felicien Ihirwe, I received my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of L’Aquila. I hold a Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. I work as a Software Research Engineer in the CodesignS core lab at FlandersMake vzw research center (Leuven, Belgium). Prior to this, I worked as a model-based developer for Intecs Solutions' Research & Development division in Pisa, Italy. I am involved in topics such as Low-code Engineering (LCE), model-based safety analysis, and the Internet of Things (IoT). My current research includes system log analysis and log-based test generation, digital twins for industrial IoT, and cloud-based low-code development platforms.
