Research Focus

Cognitive radio; software engineering-self-controlling software; information fusion

About

Professor Kokar technical research interests include Information Fusion, Software Engineering, Ontology-Based Computing, and Modeling Languages. In particular, he is interested in higher-level information fusion and situation awareness, ontology-based software radios, the specification and design of self-controlling software using the control theory metaphor, ontology development, ontological annotation of information, logical reasoning about OWL annotated information, consistency checking, formalization of the UML language, consistency checking of UML models vs. UML Metamodel and of UML Metamodel vs. MOF. Dr. Kokar teaches various graduate courses in software engineering, formal methods and artificial intelligence. He has an M.S. and a Ph.D. in computer systems engineering from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland. He is a senior member of the IEEE and member of the ACM.
