Chiara Di Francescomarino

Research Scientist at the PDI (Process & Data Intelligence) Unit of the Information Technology Center of FBK (Fondazione Bruno Kessler).

I received my Master Degree in Computer Science at University of L'Aquila, Italy, in 2003 and my PhD in Information and Communication Technologies from the University of Trento, Italy, in 2011. During the PhD I worked in the Software Engineering (SE) Unit at FBK, by mainly investigating topics related to business processes. In detail, the focus of my work was on the semantic annotation of business processes and the automated reasoning capabilities semantic annotations can provide, as well as on the reverse engineering of business process models from Web Applications. In 2011 I joined the Data and Knowledge Management (DKM) Unit and in 2013 the PDI (Process & Data Intelligence) Unit at FBK, where I am carrying out my tenure track. My current research interests include, besides business process modeling, collaborative modelling and the evaluation of tools and techniques for its support, process mining (specifically discovery and predictive monitoring) and verification.

Main Research Interests

  • Semantic annotation of business processes and automated reasoning capabilities they can provide on process models such as constraint verification, crosscutting concern mining and process aspectization.

  • Methodologies and tools for supporting domain experts and technicians in the (collaborative) design of models integrating procedural and declarative knowledge.

  • Reverse engineering of understandable business process models from existing systems.

  • Empirical evaluations with human subjects in both academic and industrial settings.

  • Monitoring of incomplete logs and predictive monitoring.

  • Process and data mining and verification.
