Dr. Artem Polyvyanyy is a senior lecturer at the School of Computing and Information Systems, Melbourne School of Engineering, at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia. He has a strong background in Computer Science, Software Engineering, and Business Process Management from the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Kyiv, Ukraine, and the Hasso Plattner Institute, Potsdam, Germany. In March 2012, he received a Ph.D. degree (Dr. rer. nat.) in the scientific discipline of Practical Computer Science from the University of Potsdam, Germany. Artem's industry experience includes internships at Wincor-Nixdorf GmbH in Hamburg, Germany, and SAP Labs in Palo Alto, CA, USA. His research and teaching interests include Distributed and Parallel Systems, Automata Theory, Formal Methods, Information Systems, Software Engineering, and Workflow Management. More recently, he has conducted research on the fundamentals of process analysis, the foundations of behavior abstraction in concurrent systems, and querying of process model repositories.
