HDR (09 May 2014) "Supporting Software Evolution in the Organizations"

Research Interests

My research interests cover about anything that has to do with software maintenance. Currently, in the INRIA/RMod team, I am working on reverse engineering which aims at providing technical solutions to help people understand better and modify legacy software. For example I work on software re-structuring, or how to help re-organizing a legacy software into coherent modules.

Because "We cannot control what we cannot measure", I am also interested in software quality topics, to measure the maintenance activity and legacy software.

In the past, I worked on the following sub-topics in relation with software maintenance: sociological aspects (Why is maintenance negatively perceived when it is the most practised activity in organizations?); knowledge management (How to recover all the knowledge that is embedded in legacy software?); maintenance management (software quality, risk management, ...)

Keywords: Software Maintenance, Software Quality, Software Reverse-Engineering, Social Aspects of Software Maintenance Teaching

Teaching

I am teaching at IUT_A (a Technical Institute) in the computer science department:

  • UI Programming (Java/Swing)
  • Software Engineering: Testing
  • Software Engineering: Agile vs Traditional project management

Material for the courses can be found on the university Moodle
