Software Architecture, Domain-Specific Language, Generative Programming, Architectural Conformance

I was a Ph.D. student supervised by Charles Consel. My thesis was about bringing general-purpose programming tools to dedicated domains. To do that I designed a domain-specific architecture description language whose compiler produces dedicated programming frameworks. An instance of this approach is DiaSpec, a language for describing Sense-Compute-Control systems.

I was one of the main developers of DiaSuite, a suite of tools comprising DiaSpec.

You can have a look at my Ph.D. thesis (in French) and my slides (also available in pdf).


My publications are kindly hosted by the Software Composition Group in Bern, Switzerland. You may also want to refer to Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, or DBLP.
