# Zinovy Diskin, Ph.D.

**Research Associate**

Room: DC 1340

Email: zdiskin-at-gsd.uwaterloo.ca

- My area of expertise is formal semantics and algebraic models for constructs and concepts used in MDE, particularly metamodeling, multimodleing and model management. Resume can be found here.

I am cross-appointed in the Department of Computing and Software at McMaster University as

**Senior Research Scientist**with the NECSIS Project.
