Dr Sofia Meacham received her Diploma in Computer and Informatics Engineering, in 1994, and her PhD degree, in 2000, from University of Patras, Greece. Her phd research interests fell in the area of system-level design for embedded systems, and include specification techniques for complex embedded telecommunication systems, hardware-software co-design, formal refinement techniques, and reuse practices. Dr Meacham has been working in EU-funded projects as researcher/embedded software engineer both in Industry and in University since 1995 and have accomplished a large amount of teaching experience in several institutions (UK and Greece) since 2000. Her latest research interests involve methodologies (processes, tools and methods) to improve design and development of systems such as model-based design, domain-specific modelling for several applications from business processes to education. She has strong links with British Telecom Research Headquarters in Adastral park and currently working in cutting-edge research in Explainable AI.
