Jon Whittle is Professor and Chair of Software Engineering in the Department of Computing at Lancaster University. His interests are in software modeling, where "model" is to be broadly interpreted -- to include requirements, architecture and design models, but also other types of models found in modern software, such as ontology models. His most recent work is typefied by a desire for software and software engineering methods to have a visible impact on society and on the lives of those living in it.
Jon has a PhD from the University of Edinburgh. Jon worked at NASA Ames Research Center for six years where he led and applied research in software modeling. He also was an Associate Professor at George Mason University in Virginia. Jon has taught software engineering across the world, most notably at India’s prestigious IIT. Jon's research has been funded by the EPSRC, NASA, the FAA, Aerospace Corporation and the Royal Society.
