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.

I have been working as the scientific responsible for the team, a work package / task leader and an active member of various project boards, in the context of the following collaborative projects (among others) involving both academic and industrial partners. In addition to these projects, I have also worked in the context of direct R&D contracts with various companies such as Orange, Sopra Steria, Salvia Developpement or BNP Paribas

Since many years, I have been 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 also used to be a regular conference speaker, e.g. at the Eclipse Community major events EclipseCon (North America), EclipseCon Europe and EclipseCon France, as well as an organizer/participant of Eclipse DemoCamps (in Nantes).
