in 2014 Eline Philips joined the IP Platforms Research Program. She was previously a post-doctoral researcher at the Software Languages Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Her primary research interests are domain specific languages, workflows, and mobile applications. She is a co-designer of the coordination language CRIME and the designer of the workflow language NOW. As part of her PhD, she developed workflow abstractions for orchestrating services in nomadic networks, and she proposed a programming model that aids development of so-called nomadic applications, which are deployed and executed on a fixed infrastructure, while communicating with nearby mobile devices. Eline will join the research work on novel approaches and techniques for workflow programmability and execution, aiming to improve today’s static workflow driven processes by introducing runtime flexibility and probabilistic models.
