Summary

Professor Papadopoulos has pioneered work on model-based dependability assessment and evolutionary optimisation of complex engineering systems known as Hierarchically Performed Hazard Origin and Propagation Studies (HiP-HOPS). He co-authored EAST-ADL, an emerging automotive architecture description language.

These technologies have gained wide academic recognition and have been successfully transferred to the automotive, shipping and other industries, where they have been commercialised and successfully deployed in design and engineering processes. He is currently developing technologies for self-certification of cyberphysical and autonomous systems.

Postgraduate supervision

Professor Papadopoulos welcomes applications in all areas of his research. The key requirements for PhD applicants are a good degree, strong software engineering skills, and an exploratory mind. Much of the work has extensive industrial applicability and is done in collaboration with large industrial organisations which are technology leaders in their field.

Despite the many applications of this work in the engineering of technologically advanced systems, such as electric and semi-autonomous cars, the work involved in those PhD projects does not require any knowledge of these engineering domains and is mainly focused on computer science, and the development and implementation of novel algorithms and tools using standard computer equipment and programming environments.
