Short CV
Ernst Oberortner graduated in 2000 at the College of Higher Technical Education for Software Engineering in Villach, Austria. Then, he started his Computer Science studies at the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, and received his Master of Science (MSc) degree in June 2007. Besides his studies, Ernst was working as a part-time software engineer and system administrator.

After completing his civilian service in March 2008, which is mandatory in Austria, he started to work as a project assistant and PhD candidate at the Distributed Systems Group (DSG) at the Vienna University of Technology. He has been supervised by Prof. Dr. Schahram Dustdar and Prof. Dr. Uwe Zdun. Ernst has received his PhD degree in March 2011. During his PhD studies, Ernst was doing research on Design Patterns, Software Architectures, Domain-specific Languages (DSL), Model-driven Development (MDD), Service-oriented Architectures (SOA), Quality-of-Service (QoS), and Service Level Agreements (SLA).

Since January 2012 Ernst works as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Cross-disciplinary Integration of Design Automation Research (CIDAR) lab at Boston University, lead by Prof. Dr. Douglas Densmore. His research focuses on domain-specific languages, software architectures and frameworks, data exchange standards, and knowledge-based engineering in the scope of bio-design automation in the Synthetic Biology domain.
