About me

I am an Associate Professor in Computer Science at the University of Montreal. I am one of the leaders of the GEODES Software Engineering Research Group. I teach bachelor, masters and doctoral level courses in software engineering. My main 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. In particular, I am interested in model transformation and collaborative modeling. I also work on simulation-based design, code generation, and deployment of large applications. Visit my research page for more information.

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 transformation in the Canada-wide NECSIS project on model-driven engineering for automotive systems. I was a member of the Modeling, Simulation, and Design Lab directed by Prof. Hans Vangheluwe.

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