My primary research interest is in the design of large software intensive system. I am fundamentally interested in applied research and usually work closely with industry partners. I believe there are plenty of interesting problems throughout industry that need to be solved. I am currently investigating software architectural design methods that address the design of very large software intensive systems. The Architecture Centric Design Method (ACDM) is a result of some of this early work. ACDM was developed in conjunction with practitioners by observing how they develop and use designs. I am currently working to refine this method and the various specific techniques used at various stages in the method.  Current work includes investigating how ACDM can be weaved into existing development process frameworks such as TSP, RUP, XP, Scrum, and CMMI. These methods will be described in a textbook that is now being written: Architecting Software Intensive Systems: A Practitioners Handbook, due to be published in 2008 by CRC Press.
