Dr. Uchitel is a Professor at the Department of Computing, FCEN, Universidad de Buenos Aires and also researcher for CONICET. He also hold a Readership at Imperial College London and is on the Board of Directors of YPF S. A.
His research interests are in the broad area of Software Engineering and more specifically in modelling and analysis as a means to gain confidence in requirements, design and code artefacts. He is interested in foundational aspects that can be exploited in tools for supporting automated reasoning, tools for which a body of meta-properties proven mathematically and experimentally exist. Currently, his main research threads are related to partial behaviour models, scenario-based specifications, verification of probabilistic systems, controller synthesis, machine learning for automated diagnosis, automatic abstraction for validation, and adaptive systems.
Dr. Uchitel is General Chair of the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) 2017 to be held in Buenos Aires and was previously co-Program Chair of ICSE 2010. He was associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering and is currently associate editor of the Requirements Engineering Journal and the Science of Computer Programming Journal. Dr Uchitel has recently been distinguished with the Bernardo Houssay prize.
