I am a Research Scientist at ONERA (the French aerospace research center). I work in projects with aeronautical industry stakeholders, like Airbus and also in projects with french certification authorities.
My research interests are focused on system modeling, requirements engineering and formal methods. I define frameworks, based either on formal methods or on models (systems engineering), to support the systems validation and the systems certification. For that, I use formal methods (model checking, like SMT) or conceptual models.
I have worked as a consultant in urban transportation and financial sector during five years. I made, for the Banque de France, a business rules engine which automatically generates financial analysis. This tool is currently in production. For the Paris public transport operator (RATP), I designed a decision support system for the management of public transport systems to deal with issues of urban traffic (prototype TRL6). I did my thesis in Artificial Intelligence: "A Logic for Planning under Partial Observability", in IRIT.
