About me

Before moving to industry in June 2016, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), a laboratory within the University of Luxembourg. My research activities focused on software engineering, and include software testing, search-based software engineering, optimization and software product lines.

I am from Nancy in France. I obtained my engineer's degree in computer science in 2011 from the former Ecole Supérieure d'Informatique et Applications de Lorraine (ESIAL, now known as TELECOM Nancy), a leading engineering school at the University of Lorraine. I got my PhD degree in 2015 from the University of Luxembourg.
