Research projects

Franco-Scottish doctoral collaboration (cotutelle) project

The CNRS-PICS FCS project gave rise to a join doctoral program between the Computer Science department of INSA Rennes (France) and the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences of Heriot-Watt University (Scotland). Within this program, and together with Saša Radomirović, I am currently directing a cotutalle Ph.D. thesis on design and verification of ceremonies for socio-technical systems.


Between 2018 and 2021, I was the coordinator of the international project entitled Foundations of Cybersecurity Scripts. It was a three-year bilateral (Franco-Britannic) project funded by the CNRS PICS program. It involved the EMSEC group from IRISA, the Computing, School of Science and Engineering from the University of Dundee in Scotland, and the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences from the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.

City of Rennes' research grant

I was a holder of a research grant awarded for the years 2017-2019 by the city of Rennes to the researchers newly set-up in Rennes. This two-years grant supported my scientific activities in the domain of security modeling and risk analysis.

EU-FP7 TREsPASS project

Between 2012 and 2014, I was working on the TREsPASS (Technology-supported Risk Estimation by Predictive Assessment of Socio-technical Security) project, funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme under Grant Agreement No. 318003.

ATREES project

Between 2009 and 2012, I was the leading researcher in the ATREES project, funded by the National Research Fund Luxembourg (CORE grant No. C08/IS/26).
