Simon works as a software architect and builds distributed systems.
On a never-ending quest to build robust software, he focuses on modeling (a.k.a solving the right problem), correctness, performance and maintainability.
Modular thinking and design is a necessary approach to succeed in meeting these goals, and OSGi is the way to make it happen in Java ; that's what Simon has been doing for the better part of the last decade.
Other interests include data science and machine learning, language theory and formal specifications, cryptocurrencies, and new computing models.

Technical Expert (Eclipse & Modeling) at CS Systèmes d'Information, France
I started my career at Atos, working on TOPCASED (https://www.polarsys.org/topcased R.I.P.), then migrating its components to Papyrus and Polarsys. I also participated on implementing the Activity and Sequence diagrams in Papyrus.
Then, I went to CS Systèmes d'Information, where I still work as an Eclipse and Modeling expert. I have since specialized in space modeling, working for the CNES (French Space Agency) or the ESA (European Space Agency). Yet, I still develop general Eclipse and modeling expertise to assist other projects and provide trainings in my company.

Speaking Experience: JavaOne, Oracle Code, Devoxx, jPrime, GeeCon, JavaLand
I am a postdoc researcher at USI, Switzerland. Since I first implemented optimization algorithms for GCC (as a Master student), I've always loved working with static analysis. This led to a Ph.D. at the Univ. of Szeged in Hungary, where I studied reverse engineering techniques on data-intensive systems.At the University of Namur in Belgium, we studied techniques to extract and analyze SQL embedded in Java, which we presented at international SE conferences and implemented as an Eclipse plugin. Besides academia, I took part and led many industrial projects which also motivated my research.
