Dr Marta Pietkiewicz-Koutny
Lecturer

Marta Pietkiewicz-Koutny received her M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from the Warsaw University of Technology in 1982. In 1984 she joined the Department of Operational Research, Institute of Econometrics in the Warsaw University of Economics where she worked as a junior lecturer until 1986.

In 1987 she joined the Computing Laboratory of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne first as a research associate and then as a demonstrator (1988-1997). In the period 1997-2000 she was a Ph.D. student at the Department of Computing Science of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, and in December 2000 she was awarded her Ph.D. degree. In the period 2000-2003 she was a researcher on the EU-funded DSoS (Dependable Systems of Systems) project, and in 2003 she was appointed a lecturer in the School of Computing Science.

Dr Pietkiewicz-Koutny's research interests concentrate on theoretical aspects of concurrent computing systems. The main topic of her research is the synthesis of Petri nets from step transition systems. She is currently a co-investigator responsible for the theoretical developments on the EPSRC project GAELS (Globally Asynchronous Elastic Logic Synthesis (GAELS).

She was a Programme Committee co-chair of the 13th International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD), Barcelona, Spain, July 2013; and a Programme Committee member of the 12th International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD), Hamburg, Germany, June 2012. She is a Programme Committee member of the 14th International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD), Tunis, Tunisia, June 2014. 

She is a co-editor of a Special Issue on Application of Concurrency to System Design of the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS).
