About me

I am a Full Professor in the department of computer science and operations research (DIRO) at the University of Montreal. I am one of the leaders of the software engineering research group (GEODES). I teach bachelor, masters and doctoral level courses in software engineering. My main research goal is to provide tools and techniques for software engineers and experts in other science and engineering disciplines that improve their productivity and help them output artifacts of high quality. My main research interests fall in software design based on the model-driven engineering approach and simulation-based design of autonomous systems. On the software engineering side, I am interested in domain-specific modeling, model transformation, collaborative modeling, and the generation of fully customizable modeling environments to improve user experience. On the simulation side, I am also interested in digital twins, discrete event simulation, and co-simulation. Visit my research page for more information.

I am currently leading several research projects on these topics in Canada and have been leading the development of several publicly available software tools. I serve on the program committee and organize several major international events in the software modeling and the simulation communities. I am also a reviewer for major journals in software engineering, modeling, and simulation.

From 2011 to 2014, I was an assistant professor at the University of Alabama (U.S.A.). I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2011 and a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science in 2006 at McGill University. Affiliated to McGill, I also pursued postdoctoral research on model-driven engineering for automotive systems.

I have also worked in service-oriented software companies as a software engineer in Canada for a decade.
