Rafael Angarita is currently an Associate Professor at the Isep since September 2017, where he is a member of the RDI (Research and Development in Information technology) team. He is also an Associate Researcher at Inria, MiMove team, where he was also a postdoctoral researcher before joining the Isep.
He obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University Paris-Dauphine in December 2015. He also owns a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from the Simon Bolivar University.
The general goal of his research is to make it easy to connect the world’s applications, data, devices, and people. More specifically, his research can be divided into the following main axis:
- Service Computing. It is the discipline that seeks to conceive computational abstractions, architectures, techniques and tools to support services and services orchestrations.
- Emergent Middleware. It tackles the interoperability problem in the context of highly dynamic, heterogeneous and complex distributed systems.
- Human as a Service. It aims to model humans as software components with dynamic interfaces capable to interact with other humans, applications, and devices. This item also concerns a social computing aspect seeking to enhance collaboration on the Internet.
