Christopher Anand developed safety-critical Magnetic Resonance Imaging Software at Picker Medical Systems. The weaknesses in conventional software development he observed there motivates his current goal of developing tools which not only make the application of rigorous verification within reach of practitioners, but make it cost-effective to use them on a daily basis and for software with the most challenging performance requirements.

 

In addition to these people, the Centre currently has a complement of over twenty researchers at McMaster, in a variety of engineering disciplines, mainly software engineering.
