Prof. Dr. Kuldar Taveter (DipEng, MSc, PhD) is a professor in software engineering at the Department of Informatics of Tallinn University of Technology. Jointly with Professor Leon Sterling from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, he has developed a new discipline called agent-oriented modeling, which is described in their monograph by MIT Press. Agent-oriented modeling facilitates designing distributed socio-technical systems, which include e-governance systems.
Currently he leads the team of his university in one FP7 project and one Horizon 2020 project by EU. In 2005-2008 he was a research fellow at the University of Melbourne, Australia, where he was working in agent-oriented software engineering. In 1997-2005 Kuldar was employed as a research scientist and project leader at the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT), which acts as a mediator between academy and industry. His main research areas at VTT were agent-based business process automation and ontologies. In 2011 he spent 8 months as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of South Carolina, USA, doing research work in agent-based crowdsourcing systems. He has about 50 publications and 340 citations by Google Scholar.
