Dr. Hanan Lutfiyya is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario.  She has served as Chair of the Department of Computer Science. She is currently co-director of a Vector Institute approved collaborative AI program offered jointly with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  She received the UWO Faculty Scholar Award in 2006.  Her research interests include Internet of Things, software engineering, self-adaptive and self-managing systems, autonomic computing, monitoring and diagnostics, mobile systems, policies, and clouds.  Her research group in collaboration with industrial and government partners investigates different aspects of reliable software and systems.  She has developed innovative approaches to self-managing systems based on policy-based approaches.  She is currently the Chief Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions Network and Systems Management and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Network and Systems Management.   

Professor Lutfiyya is a past member of the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Discovery Grant Committee, NSERC Strategic Network Committee, and a past member and Chair of an NSERC Strategic Grants Committee.  She was a  member of the Computer Science Accreditation Council (CSAC).  She is a past Executive Director, Ontario Consortium for Graduate Education in Software Engineering (CONGESE) program and is currently co-director of a Vector Institute approved collaborative AI program offered jointly with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. She was a  member of the Computer Science Accreditation Council (CSAC).  She is a past Executive Director, Ontario Consortium for Graduate Education in Software Engineering (CONGESE) program

Research Interests

My research interests are focused primarily on the management of systems, networks and services. Application areas include cloud and edge computing, software-defined networks, policy-based systems and cyberphysical systems e.g., smart electrical grid. I also have interest in making it easier to manage based on intents and middleware environments.
