I'm an associate professor at University of Lille, member of the Spirals group, a joint team between University of Lille within the CRIStAL research center and Inria. Before joining University of Lille, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Politecnico di Milano. I hold a MSc. in Computer Science from University of Montpellier, and a PhD in Computer Science from University of Lille. Prior to the PhD, I spent two years as a software engineer developing tools and apps for smartphones.
