Dr Brahim HAMID is an associate professor at the University of Toulouse Jean-Jaures and he is a member of the IRIT-MACAO team. He got his PhD degree in 2007 in the area of dependability in distributed computing systems from the University of Bordeaux (France). In addition, he has an M.Sc. in Theoretical Computer Science that provides him with background on mathematical, logic and formal concepts. He has been an assistant professor (ATER) at ENSEIRB (Bordeaux, France), and a member of LaBRI (France). Then he worked as a post-doc in the modeling group at the CEA-Saclay List (France). He was a visiting professor at the university of Concordia (August 2011), at the university of Florida (September 2014, April, July and August 2016) and at the university of Vienna (April 2015). His main research topics are software languages engineering, at both the foundations and application level, particularly for resource constrained systems. He works on security, dependability, software architectures, formalization, validation and verification as well as supporting reconfiguration. Furthermore, he is an expert in model-driven development approaches both in research and teaching. Emphasis of his work lies on the development of tools to model and to analyze secure and dependable software architecture of critical infrastructures as railway and metrology systems.
He has participated in a number of national and European research projects. In particular, he has led successfully the IRIT effort on the TERESA FP7 European project, and several national projects. Brahim Hamid is author or co-author of over 50 internationally reviewed publications, mostly on software engineering and IT security and dependability, and he has co-organized several international workshops (DANCE, SD4RCES, ISSA). He serves as a reviewer in numerous leading journals of the software engineering domain (SOSYM, ADHOC networks, JSA, JSS, JSME, SPE, DIST, etc.), and as a member of various international conference program committees (ICECCS, WISTP, MEDI, SERE, EUROPLOP, SERENE, etc.). He has been invited to do expertise work for various organizations: DFG (Germany), FWO (Belgium), FFG (Austria) and for various national research programs (ANR, CIR, etc.). He is also participating in several working groups and involved in several teaching activities related to security and system engineering, as well as engaging technology transfer to other organizations and other bodies or agencies, and more generally through consulting and training activities.
