Goran Delac is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from the UniZg, FER in 2014. His thesis, entitled “Reliability Management of Composite Consumer Applications”,  was supervised by Prof. Sinisa Srbljic. His research efforts are focused on methods that support assurance of reliability in large scale composite systems based on service oriented architectures. In 2011 Goran was granted a software engineering internship position at Tuenti Technologies S.L. During the internship, he was working on the MVNO project aimed at integrating mobile phone and social network services. His research interests span the area of fault tolerant and dependable computing, distributed systems and service oriented computing.
