Dr. Awais Rashid is a faculty member in Lancaster University’s Computing Department, where he leads research in aspect-oriented software engineering.
One of his core interests is application of aspect-oriented techniques for supporting object persistence and developing architectures for evolvable and adaptable object data management systems. He has been working in object data management for over 10 years and applying aspect-oriented techniques in this context for over 7 years.
