About me

Stoyan is a graduate student at Vanderbilt University pursuing a Master's degree in Computer Science. His main focus is Distributed Systems, Model-Driven Software Development and Software Design and Architecture. Stoyan is a member of the Distributed Object Computing (DOC) group lead by the internationally renowned Dr. Douglas Schmidt and a research assistant at the Institute of Software Integrated Systems (ISIS).

Recent Research & Development

  • As part of his research work Stoyan is working on the Component Integrated ACE ORB (CIAO) which is an open-source implementation of the CORBA Component Model standard adopted by the Object Management Group (OMG). He is in change of the development of the RepositoryManager in CIAO, a service which allows the efficient manipulation of component packages in the form of implementation artifacts and metadata.
  • Stoyan also developed the Quality of Service (QoS) Policy Modeling Language (QoSPML) by means of the Generic Modeling Environment (GME). This graphical tool allows developers to capture the QoS specification of their Real-Time CORBA application, validate the correctness of the model and automatically syntesize configuration metadata in the form of XML. The configuration metadata is then used during deployment to configure the application with the desired QoS policies and properties. QoSPML is now fully integrated in the CoSMIC tool chain.
  • Occasionally Stoyan works on new features and bug fixes within our middleware technolodies - ACE, TAO and CIAO.
