Short bio

I'm an associate professor at University of Lille, with a particular interest in design, management and evolution of highly-configurable software systems. I'm 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 for 3 years, where I worked in the DEEP-SE group. I hold a MSc. in Computer Science from University of Montpellier, and a PhD in Computer Science from University of Lille (2014). Prior to the PhD, I have been working for two years as a software engineer developing tools and apps for smartphones.
