PhD Student in Formal Methods

ISAE-SUPAERO

Biography

I am a PhD student at ISAE-SUPAERO, in Toulouse. My thesis deals with formal methods applied on UAV autopilot, especially Paparazzi autopilot developed at ENAC. I am currently working on the verification of a mathematical library of Paparazzi using Frama-C with EVA and WP plugins. I am focusing on the verification of the absence of runtime errors (overflows, divisions by 0…) but I also verify some functional properties.
