About me
I am a research associate active in undergraduate teaching and outreach activities (for more details visit our IC Declic Summer School Webpage). In addition, I work for Cadence Design Systems. In my research I focus on the development of reliable computer systems using synthesis techniques. In particular, I am interested in - Synthesis and repair of programs, - Quantitative verification and synthesis, - Synthesis from specifications in temporal logics, - Analysis and verification of hardware designs, transactional memories, and business process models, - Synthesis techniques for embedded systems and Interface theory, and - Infinite games and Automata theory. Previously, I was a CNRS research scientist at Verimag, an academic research laboratory belonging to the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and the University of Grenoble, France.
