Omar is an active researcher on Aspect Oriented
Modeling with UML. His research objectives are
tied to the mission of the
Aspect Oriented Modeling
Aspect-orientation is a rapidly advancing
technology. New and powerful aspect-oriented
programming techniques are presented at the
International Conference on Aspect-Oriented Software
Development. However, it is not clear what
features of such techniques are "common
aspect-oriented concepts" and what features are
rather language-specific specialties. Research in
Aspect-Oriented Modeling has the potential to help
find such common characteristics from a perspective
that is at a more abstract level (i.e., programming
language-independent). The ultimate goal of research
in AOM is to provide aspect-oriented software
developers with general means to express aspects and
their crosscutting relationships onto other software
