Short bio

I started my Ph.D. in october of 2011 in the ADAM team from the INRIA Lille - Nord Europe and the University of Lille 1. My Ph.D. focuses in the management of variability in the cloud computing domain.

From 2009 to 2011, I was software engineer in the ADAM team and I worked on the development of a framework to design and configure applications for smartphones.

Research interests

Cloud Computing is a major trend in distributed computing environments enabling software virtualization on configurable runtime platforms. Configuration and customization choices arise due to the heterogeneous and scalable aspect of the cloud computing paradigm. The wide range of cloud solutions and the lack of knowledge in this domain is a real problem for companies when facing the cloud solution choice. Indeed, the selection of a cloud among others as well as the selection of required tools and/or libraries in this cloud remains challenging due to the amount of providers and their intrinsic variability. Feature Models (FM) originating from Software Product Lines (SPL) approach is one way to handle this variability and then manage, create and derive configurations in the cloud.
