I am an Inria researcher in the Toccata team from the LMF laboratory (Université Paris Saclay).

My work lies at the intersection between the domains of computer arithmetic and formal proof.

**Automated proof of numerical properties.**I am interested in methods for automating the verification of numerical programs. In particular, I am developing the Gappa tool and the CoqInterval library. Gappa is dedicated to the formal proof of small yet complicated functions relying on floating-point arithmetic; such functions can be found in mathematical libraries such as CRlibm. CoqInterval provides some Coq tactics for formally proving inequalities on real-valued expressions by performing computations. I am also investigating SMT solvers such as Alt-Ergo in order to improve their support for real and floating-point arithmetics.**Formal verification of programs.**With respect to program proof, I am also participating to bigger projects. For instance, the goal of the FOST project was to achieve a comprehensive formal proof of a scientific computing program that solves the wave equation. The Verasco project aimed at developing and formally verifying a C compiler and some static analysis tools. I am also contributing to the development of the Why3 framework for deductive verification of programs and to its interactions with Coq and Gappa.**Formalization of arithmetic.**The above topics require from proof assistants a good support for real numbers and analysis, and for floating-point arithmetic. As a consequence, I am also part of the Coquelicot and Flocq projects. Coquelicot is a conservative extension of Coq's standard library on real numbers, while Flocq is a generic formalization of floating-point arithmetic in Coq.**Interval arithmetic.**I am also looking at reliable computations outside formal systems, and more precisely at interval arithmetic. For instance, I am one of the developers of a generic interval module for the Boost C++ library. I am also a member of the IEEE 1788 committee for standardizing interval arithmetic and I follow the evolution of the C++ language with respect to support for scientific computations.
