Additional Information


I co-supervised (50% with Olivier Roux) master student Emna Ben Abdallah on the following subject: Implementation of biological networks analysis tools with logic programming in ASP.

I gave lessons and practicals at the École Centrale de Nantes, at the IUT de Nice and at the Faculté des Sciences de Nantes. I mainly teach:

I also co-supervised (33% to 50%) several projects of 3rd year engineering students (bac+5) in computer science.

Other activities

Former member of the AED (now ACDC), an association for PhD students on the Centrale Nantes campus.

I participated in seminars to teach the basics of Latex to PhD and Master students. [ Slides 2014(fr): 1, 2, 3 | Slides 2016(fr): 1, 2, Exercices ]

I presented a 2-session informal seminar on Coq in order to present theorem provers in the scope of NantesFP. [ Slides(fr): 1, 2; Exercices(fr) ]
