Étienne André

I am an associate professor (maître de conférences) with LIPN in the University Paris 13, Sorbonne Paris Cité, working in the Logic, Computation and Reasoning team, more specifically in the specification and verification research axis.

I am holding in 2015-2016 a délégation CNRS (CNRS researcher position) at IRCCyN, École Centrale, Nantes, France.

I offer a fully funded PhD thesis (co-supervised by Didier Lime) on formal verification of parametric real-time systems with preemption. More information here.

Keywords: model checking, Verification, distributed and concurrent systems, Timed systems, Parametric Timed Automata, Parameter synthesis.

Software development



Post-doctoral Activity

I have been a research fellow (post-doc) in Prof. Dong Jin Song’s team in the National University of Singapore. I have been working, and keep collaborating, with the PAT model checker team.

Ph.D. thesis

I wrote my Ph.D. thesis in the Laboratoire Spécification et Vérification, ENS Cachan, France of the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France under the supervision of Laurent Fribourg and Emmanuelle Encrenaz.

Title: An Inverse Method for the Synthesis of Timing Parameters in Concurrent Systems [PDF Flag United Kingdom].
Lazy? A version of my thesis readable in 5 secondes is available here (another version is there).


A list of conferences in formal methods I am interested in.

I attend as often as possible the MeFoSyLoMa seminary (Formal Methods for Software and Hardware).

I am very proud that my ha-index is 78.

I developed several Web sites such as Breizh Partitions and eNoz.
