Editor/Author Biographies
Muthu Ramachandran is currently a Principal Lecturer in Computing and Information Systems Group, The Faculty of Arts, Environment and Technology, Leeds Metropolitan University, Leeds, UK. Previously, he spent nearly eight years in industrial research (Philips Research Labs and Volantis Systems Ltd, Surrey, UK) where he worked on software architecture, reuse, and testing. Prior to that, he was teaching at Liverpool John Moores University and received his PhD from Lancaster University. His first career started as a research scientist from India Space Research Labs where he worked on real time systems development projects. Muthu is an author of a book called Software Components: Guidelines and Applications, (Nova Publishers, NY, USA, 2008). He is also an edited co-author of a book on Handbook of research in software engineering, (IGI, 2010). He has also widely published articles on journals, chapters, and conferences on various advanced topics on software engineering and education. He did his Masters degrees from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras and from Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai, India. Muthu is also a member of various professional organisations and computer societies: IEEE, ACM, BCS, Fellow of HEA.
Rogerio Atem de Carvalho (PhD) is a teacher, researcher, and Innovation Coordinator with the Instituto Federal Fluminense (IFF), Brazil, and a Brazilian representative at both IFIP Working Group and IEEE SMC Society Technical Committee on Enterprise Information Systems. He holds a BSc in computer science and a DSc in industrial engineering. His technical interests and publishing areas include free software, ERP, ECM, project management, and decision support systems.
