Associate professor at the National Institutes of Applied Sciences (INSA Rennes), France, since 2011, doing research in the Diverse team (formely called Triskell) at Inria / IRISA, Rennes.

I have received a PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Angers, France (2009).

I develop a research activity in the field of software engineering with a focus on user interface (UI) engineering and model-driven engineering (MDE). Regarding UI engineering, I currently work on the validation and maintenance of user interfaces. I focus on the use of software testing and code analysis techniques to produce, as automatically as possible, UI tests and detect bad UI coding practices. My current MDE activity investigates how to assemble and customise domain-specific languages, and how to leverage model slicing techniques.
