Research Activities

Member of IRISA and Inria's DiverSE project-team, doing research on Model Driven Engineering of Software Product Lines with a special focus on the domain of component based reactive and large scale distributed systems with quality of service constraints, including reliability, performance, timeliness etc.

In this context, we are building the Kermeta (Kernel Meta-modeling) environment. It defines a core metamodeling toolkit for building model driven specific tools, such as model level aspect weavers, product line modeling and derivation tools, model based test cases generation, etc.

Short Biography

I received an engineering degree in Telecommunications from Telecom Bretagne in 1986, and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Rennes, France, in 1989. I then worked for the TRANSPAC company on an Intelligent Network project. I then became  a researcher (Chargé de recherche) in the Irisa Lab for the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). In this context, I have directed a project called EPEE (Eiffel Parallel Execution Environment), which is an object-oriented design framework for programming distributed computing systems. During the most of 1996, I have been visiting Pr. Yonezawa's lab., in the University of Tokyo, Japan. In March-April 1999, I visited the CS&SE Department of Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. I've got an habilitation à diriger les recherches, Programmation fiable et efficace des architectures parallèlles distribuées, November 1997.

Since October 2000, I'm a Professor at the University of Rennes. From 2001 to 2011, I was head of Inria's Triskell team. I have also been Deputy Director of MATISSE Doctoral School, Member of the Project Committee Board of INRIA Rennes, and Head of the Language and Software Engineering Department at IRISA

Since January 2012, I'm Director of IRISA.

We received the "10 Years Most lnfluential Paper Award" for the paper Weaving Executability into Object-Oriented Meta-Languages presented at ACM/IEEE 8th lnt. Conference on the Unified Modeling Language (MODELS/UML 2005)

In 2016 I have been awarded with the CNRS Silver Medal.
