Dorina C. Petriu is a full professor in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University, Ottawa, ON, Canada. She received a Dipl. Eng. degree in computer engineering from the Polytechnic University of Timisoara, Romania, and a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Carleton University. Her research expertise includes software performance engineering with emphasis on integrating performance evaluation into the software development process, model-driven development, and software development for robotics and virtual environments. She is recognized for pioneering contributions in bridging the gap between performance analysis and model-driven software development based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML), a known standard for software specification and design. As a leader in the field, she was asked to be a contributor to two international standards that are extending UML for modeling and analysis of real-time systems.
         She has established research collaborations with researchers from Canada, USA, France, Italy and Ireland. In 2009 she was invited to be a foreign member of the “Conseil Scientifique Technologies pour l’Information et les Télécommunications" du Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique (CEA), France. Prof. Petriu succeeded in conveying her enthusiasm for the engineering profession to generations of undergraduate and graduate students trained during her career as an engineering professor and university administrator. Dr. Petriu is a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada, Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada, Senior Member of I.E.E.E. and member of A.C.M.
