The SMILE project is about the meta-model-based definition of languages using semantics of meta-languages. The main idea is to use DSLs for the formal definition of languages. Such a definition can then be turned into a tool for the language. It is an umbrella for many PhD, master and bachelor theses. See also the LanguageLab project.
The second area of reseearch interest is the use of technology for education. The main focus is the pedagogics and the best use of available technology, rather than inventing new technology.
A third area of interest is the use of technology for health. Currently, there is much focus on the use of technology in hospitals and for care providers, but it is also important to look at the possibilities to advance health for each individual.
My research is related to domain specific languages and language technology. This is handled in the LanguageLab project.
I was involved in the following projects: The ISIS project worked on model-driven definition of mobile services. The MarCom project defined a platform for maritime communication. The NORCOWE project worked with information architecture for integration and maintenance of offshore wind installations.
