PhD Student in Software Engineering

University Rennes 1

I am a third year PhD Student in Software Engineering and in Environmental Science / Hydrology. I’m working on using modelling for decision making and risk assessment applied to hydrological simulation and flooding prediction. I aim to help scientists develop and explore their simulation models thanks to specific Approximate Computing techniques. #SE4Science

Research

I’m currently a PhD Student in Software Engineering and Hydrogeology at the University of Rennes 1. My doctorate is part of a collaboration between the IRISA and OSUR laboratories and reflects the desire to bring software engineering closer to the scientific field of hydrogeology. Thus, I participate in the research activities of the DiverSE and DIMENV@risce teams.

My research work mainly focuses on modelling for decision making and flood risk assessment. I am applying approximate computing techniques to scientific models in order to make the exploration of simulation and prediction results accessible to decision makers. In my journey to achieve that goal, I am receiving valuable advice from my supervisors Johann Bourcier, Jean-Raynald de Dreuzy and Benoit Combemale.

Teaching

I had the chance to be a teaching assistant at the University of Rennes 1 (ISTIC).
