About

This is me, outside the Louvre (2016)

Welcome to the website of Miguel Jiménez. I am a PhD student at the University of Victoria, located in the beautiful city of Victoria, Canada.

I am originally from Colombia, host to the lungs of the world and the mythical land once imagined by Nobel prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez.

This is me, next to my poster at CASCON (2017)

I received a Bachelor degree in Systems Engineering from Universidad Icesi in 2014, and a Master of Science degree in Informatics and Telecommunications in 2016 from the same university. My undergraduate thesis project (in Spanish) was a domain-specific language (DSL) for specifying and executing composable and automated tests for the Service Component Architecture. For my master thesis, I developed a framework for generating and deploying dynamic performance monitors for Self-Adaptive Systems. The framework was composed of two DSLs, PaSCAni, for dynamic monitoring, and Amelia, for application deployment.

My research interests include Self-Adaptive Software Systems, Domain-Specific Languages, Software Deployment, and their practical application in software development. My professional objective is to find challenging problems, understand them and propose solutions that positively impact engineers' work.

You can find more information about my interests and experiences on my résumé.
