Professor in computer science, IMT Atlantique, LS2N-CNRS, 2003-current (Nantes, France)

Research in constraint programming:

  •     global constraints and structural time-series constraints
  •     efficient filtering algorithms
  •     describing constraints (with meta data, graph, automata, transducers)
