I'm Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis / Université Côte d'Azur (UCA). From septembre 2017, I belong to the Computer Science department of the Polytech Nice Sophia Antipolis Engineering School. I'm responsible for apprenticeship at the CS Master 2 level (software engineering Major), and for apprenticeship at the CS engineering level (3 years to Graduat level). I'm also managing the major in Software Architecture at the Polytech Engineering School and Master in CS (common major at the graduate level).
From december 2017 to decembre 2018, I was deputy director of the engineering shool in charge of the corporate relations. I'm also teaching different courses mainly related to Software Engineering.
As a researcher, I'm a member of the I3S laboratory (UMR CNRS-UNS 7271), involved in the Sparks team, see news and interest below.

News

  • Our paper "Composing Feature Models" with Mathieu Acher, Philippe Lahire, and late Robert B. France, published at SLE'2009 is going to receive the Most Influential Paper Award at the SLE'2019 conference!
  • Paper "Identifying and Visualizing Variability in Object-Oriented Variability-Rich Systems" accepted as full paper at the main research track of SPLC'19 conference (ranked QUALIS A2). It also got an ACM Artifacts Evaluated – Reusable badge and the symfinder tool, used in this paper, will be presented in the demonstration and tool track!
  • Paper "Multifaceted Automated Analyses for Variability-Intensive Embedded Systems" accepted as full paper at the main research track of ICSE'19 conference (ranked CORE A*, QUALIS A1 !) 

Research Interests

  • Software Product Lines and variability engineering (large scale management of variability-aware software, composition of feature models, relationships to software architectures, reverse engineering of variability models, domain-driven multiple software product lines)
