Welcome

Research

I am member of the Inria Project team Mocqua, Loria. My main research domain is implicit computational complexity whose aim is to study machine-independent program complexity. I am also interested in:

  • Static analysis and verification
  • Logic and type systems
  • Computational models
  • Programming Languages
  • Quantum computation

I am currently member of ANR SoftQPro and I was involved in ACI Criss (2004-2008), ANR Complice (2008-2013), ANR Binsec (2012-2013) and ANR Elica (2015-2019). I used to be the principal investigator of the Inria associate team Cristal(2009-2012).

I am in the PC of DICE-FOPARA 2019 and I was in the PC of DICE 2014, FOPARA 2015, RAC 2016, DICE 2018  and in the OC of CCA 2013.

I am guest editor with Martin Avanzini of a TCS special issue on Implicit Computational Complexity .

Teaching

I am associate professor at UFR Mathématiques et Informatique, Université de Lorraine where I am teaching:

  • logic (1st year students)
  • object oriented programming in Java (2nd and 3rd years)
  • mathematics in computer science (Master 1)

I am also teaching:

  • Databases at Institute ISAM-IAE,
  • Computational Complexity at engineering school IGA Rabat (Morocco)
  • Implicit Computational Complexity  at Master 2 in Computer Science (Faculté des Sciences et Techniques).

I was formerly director of the Miage licence (bachelor), UFR MI (2011-2018) and director of the c2i, Nancy 2 University (2009-2011) and member of Opération Postes (2009-2012).
