Current position

  • Professor at ISTIC, University of Rennes 1.
  • Member of the CAIRN research group at IRISA/INRIA.

Research Interest

My research interests revolve around  design tools and technique for complex hardware/software systems. This includes (among others) compiler optimizations for High-Level-Synthesis, automatic parallelisation using polyhedral compilation techniques and hardware assisted Dynamic Binary Translation.

I also recently started collaborating with Isabelle Puaut on WCET aware compilation and parallelization in the context of the H2020 Argo project.
