LIGM I am a member of the Gaspard-Monge computer science research laboratory (LIGM). I am part of the LRT team.

My research interests include real-time scheduling theory, real-time operating systems and the Real-Time Specification for Java. My full publications list can also be consulted on my online HAL resume.

From October 2005 to October 2008, I have been preparing a PhD thesis1 on Real-Time systems entitled: Non periodic events integration in real-time systems: application to the event management in the Real-Time Specification for Java.
I have defended this thesis on December 8, 2008.

I arrived at ESIEE Paris in September 2009 where I continued to work on this topic by participating in the collective work Distributed, Embedded and Real-time Java Systems2. I then became interested in the problem of real-time scheduling for embedded systems equipped with energy collectors345. I supervised the PhD thesis of Younès Chandarli on this topic6.

In 2015, I made a six-month visit to CISTER in Portugal where I started to work on the Dual Priority scheduling problem7.

Recently, I am interested in taking into account preemption times in real-time scheduling analysis8.
