I'm an assistant professor at the University of Strasbourg, France, associated with the ICPS group, the research team on parallel and scientific computing at ICube. I submitted my doctorate in 1992 at the University of Besançon and my "Habilitation à diriger les recherches" in 2003 at the University Louis Pasteur of Strasbourg.

Research interests

My research work is concerned with foundations of parallel programming. I'm interested in formalizing, proving and mechanizing the static or dynamic code transformations that are used to tune programs to parallel architectures.

Keywords: Parallel programming model - Semantics of programming languages - Code transformations - Parallel algorithmics

Research projects

My most recent works are about the following issues :

  • Languages for expressing parallelism
  • Geometrical models to improve programs performance
  • Design of efficient numerical methods

Internship offers

  • Master 1 (TER)

-- 2023-2024 "Appels récursifs vs. accès tableau" (for students of the University of Strasbourg)

  • Teaching support (These documents are on the educational Moodle platform of the University of Strasbourg)
  • Learning Functional Programming (I wrote a book in the collection "Mini Manuel" of the editions DUNOD [2])
  • Educational application (I designed a web application to experiment with lambda-calculus [3])
