His research field mainly focuses on intrusion detection and security supervision, but he has interest in virology, and auto-organized networks (ad hoc, P2P) security. He is author or coauthor of more than sixty national or international publications. He personally advised 15 PhD students (2 on-going) and was also thesis director for 14 additional students.


Ludovic Mé was leader of the Supélec SSIR research team from 1997 to 2011, and of the Inria/Supélec/CNRS/University of Rennes joint research team CIDRE  from 2011 to 2016. He was also from 2008 to 2015 in charge for Supélec of the last year major program (master level) dedicated to information systems security. From January 2015 to February 2019, he was head of science of the Rennes Bretagne Atlantique Inria research center.

He serves the  steering comity of the French conference RESSI since 2015. He was a member (2004-2012) of the editorial board of the JCV "European Research Journal in Computer Virology" (Springer), and served a few advisory boards: the board for the security activities of the DGA (2006-2012), the board for the security activities at EDF (2010), and the French "High Council for Strategic Education and Research" scientific board (2011-2013).
