Patrick Place is a senior member of the technical staff at the SEI, working in the Software Solutions Division.

Place has been involved in a number of different areas at the SEI, including use of formal methods, requirements elicitation, real time distributed systems communication, domain specific software architectures, COTS-based systems, systems of systems, and use of Service Oriented Architecture.

Recently Place has been directly involved with direct customer engagements, particularly in helping and providing training as customers transition from a traditional waterfall to a more agile development cycle 

Place' background spans a variety of organizations from a large telecommunications company to a small, research-oriented software developer to a hardware manufacturer. The common thread across these companies is that he developed software at these companies. Throughout his career, he has focused on the software development lifecycle and, also, tools to help make his job easier.

While maintaining a career as a software developer, Place has also been a part-time lecturer at three universities, typically teaching in the area of formal methods.

Place holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science from University of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
