She investigates model-driven approaches to allow realization of situation detection from high-level situation specifications. Her team has been working on a framework to support the development of Situation-Aware applications, which includes (i) a Situation Modeling Language (SML) to allow graphic expression of primitive situations and complex situations involving the composition of situations; and (ii) a distributed implementation platform to allow rule-based situation specification and situation lifecycle management.
