Dr. Paul Clarke is Principal Investigator on the Future Software Systems Architectures (FSSA) project which is funded by the Disruptive Technologies and Innovation Fund (DTIF). This project examines the application of AI to the task of software architectural transformation, notably in the context of microservices extraction from monolith-based architectures. Other research interests include continuous software engineering, serverless computing, human aspects of software development, gamification in software development, and software process adaptive capability. Formerly, Research Manager for the MDevSPICE® safety critical medical device software assessment framework project.
