I'm a Research Associate in the Software Verification and Validation Lab (SVV Lab) led by Prof. Lionel Briand since Oct. 2014.
Previously, I was Postdoctoral fellow from February to July 2014 in the DiverSE group lead by Dr. Benoit Baudry at Inria Rennes (France).
I dit my PhD (2010-2013) between the University of Rennes 1 under the supervision of Dr. Benoit Baudry and EDF R&D (Electricité de France) where I worked on the formalization of software related safety standards and regulations.

My research interests are focused on Software Engineering, with a particular emphasis on model-driven engineering, requirements engineering, traceability and variability aspects in systems requirements/features. More particularly, I am interested on how model-based approaches can be combined to other techniques such as information retrieval or natural language processing to help in formalizing and analyzing information that is written in uncontrolled natural language. This goes from formalizing regulatory safety requirements within the context of my PhD at EDF R&D, to general product comparison matrices during my Postdoctoral Researcher position at Inria, or legal compliance to standards and laws, currently in Luxembourg.

More information about me and my research can be found in various places such as DBLP, scholar or my personal page.
