I am doing research and managing innovative projects on software engineering for the NaoMod team - IMT Atlantique & LS2N (CNRS) (formerly AtlanMod team) with particular focuses on:

  • The design and application of model-based techniques and architectures to real industrial problems (reverse engineering, tool/language interoperability, model management & traceability, Cloud Computing, Cyber-Physical Systems, etc.)
  • The dissemination and/or industrialization of corresponding research results and prototypes (e.g. knowledge and technology transfer to companies).

Constantly interacting with the team’s partner labs and companies within the context of different collaborative actions, I have published and presented more than 50 papers in various international journals, conferences and workshops around modeling and its applications to different domains.

Since several years, I am also active in the Eclipse open source community as the leader of the MoDisco project and a regular promoter of EMF, ATLEMF Facet and other Eclipse Modeling projects.

I am a regular conference speaker, e.g. at the Eclipse Community major events which are EclipseCon (North America), EclipseCon Europe and EclipseCon France, as well as an organizer/participant of Eclipse DemoCamps (in Nantes).
