Sebastian Uchitel holds a Readership at Imperial College London and is currently also ad-honorem professor at University of Buenos Aires and CONICET. He currently also on the board of the national argentine oil company, YPF. He received his undergraduate computer science degree from University of Buenos Aires and his Phd in Computing from Imperial College London. His research interests are in behavior modeling and analysis of requirements and design for complex software-intensive systems. Dr. Uchitel was associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering and is currently associate editor of the Requirements Engineering Journal and the Science of Computer Programming Journal, he was program co-chair of the 21st IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering and of the 32nd IEEE/ACM International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2010).

Sebastian Uchitel’s research interests are in the field of software engineering and more specifically in the use of models to aide the construction and maintenance of high quality of software-intensive systems. He is interested in behavior modeling and analysis of requirements and design for such systems, and particularly in the problem of model construction and evaluation. One of his research focuses is on providing early feedback in the modeling process, hence he has worked extensively on approached based on partial behaviour models including scenario-based specifications, behaviour model synthesis techniques, automated learning approaches and formalisms such as modal transition systems. He is also interested in, and applied his research to goal-oriented requirements engineering, reliability engineering, software architectures and service-oriented architectures. More recently, interests include topics on probabilistic behaviour, abstraction for validation and model based testing.
He is a member of the IEEE Computer Society and ACM
