Short bio: I am currently a research scientist at the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of UC Berkeley, working in the group of Sanjit Seshia. In 2007, I graduated from Grenoble University with a Ph.D in Computer Science and Mathematics on simulation-based verification of hybrid systems, under the supervision of Oded Maler and Thao Dang at Verimag. In 2007-2008, I was a post-doctoral faculty at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Edmund M. Clarke and Bruce H. Krogh on the verification of control systems. Most notably, I worked on statistical Model Checking and systematic testing/simulation of Simulink models using sensitivity or uncertainty analysis. Back to Verimag in 2009, I started a collaboration with TIMC laboratory, most notably with Eric Fanchon on the topic of formal methods applied to systems biology. I also largely contributed to the development and use of Signal Temporal Logic (STL), a formal specification language adapted to hybrid systems which include Cyber-physical (embedded) systems, circuits, biological systems, etc.

I joined UC Berkeley in March 2012. My more recent work there concerns specification mining for CPS, which was successfully applied in an industrial context in a collaboration with Toyota and the development of an autograding system for CPS MOOC on edX. The latter is informally described on National Instruments' web site.

Here is a CV.

Research: The main goal of my research is to develop mathematical and computational tools for the analysis and the design of complex dynamical systems arising from different domains, in particular cyber-physical or embedded systems (or software interacting with a physical environment), biological systems, mixed signal circuits. You can look at my publications to get more details on my research.
