Biography

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 research interests fall 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. Specifically, she worked as an embedded software engineer for INTRACOM Telecommunications Solutions and ISD s.a. and has participated in more than 10 research projects funded by the European Commission regarding developing telecommunications systems and system level methodologies. Dr Meacham has published a number of referred articles in International Journals and well known conferences in the area of co-design with particular interest in system level design, design automation tools and real time applications...
