Short Bio

I am organizing MoRe 2018 with J. Sproston during FLoC 2018 in Oxford: consider joining us!

In October 2017, I will join the Mathematics Department and Complexys Institute in the Université de Mons (UMONS), Belgium, as an FNRS research associate (tenured researcher position) in the team of T. Brihaye.

I am currently an FNRS post-doctoral researcher in the Formal Methods and Verification group at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Belgium. I am part of the team of J.-F. Raskin. My research interests are mainly focused on game theory, formal verification and efficient and reliable controller synthesis for reactive systems.

From October 2014 to September 2015, I was a post-doctoral researcher in the VASCO group at the LSV, CNRS & ENS Cachan, France, and a member of the CASSTING project. I worked with P. Bouyer-Decitre and N. Markey.

From October 2010 to September 2014, I was a research fellow of the FNRS at the Université de Mons (UMONS), Belgium. I was part of the Theoretical Computer Science team, led by V. Bruyère. I defended my PhD thesis in Computer Science in April 2014. My thesis, entitled Synthesis in Multi-Criteria Quantitative Games, was supervised by V. Bruyère (UMONS) and J.-F. Raskin (ULB).


My recent work is focused on rich game models involving stochastic behavior, multiple objectives, qualitative and quantitative specifications, etc.
