Topics of interests

My research activities focus on the design and the management of Dynamically Reconfigurable Architectures (DRA). More precisely I investigate the following areas:
  • New approaches in dynamically reconfigurable architecture (HW and SW point of view),
  • Design of efficient and flexible interconnections,
  • Dedicated embedded operating system for DRA,
  • Fault-tolerant systems and reliability in embedded systems.
  • Hardware security in embedded systems.
