Welcome to Alexandre Bartel's Home Page!

Alexandre Bartel I am a research associate in software engineering at the University of Luxembourg in the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust's Serval Team. Prior to that I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Technical University of Darmstadt in the Secure Software Engineering group. I earned a Ph.D in 2014 from the University of Luxembourg, Before that, I received a M.S. from KTH, and a B.S. from INPG.
Broadly speaking my research is in the area of software engineering and computer security. The general idea is to study existing software layers from a security point of view and design efficient algorithms to verify security properties. My current research focuses on system security and on the analysis of permission-based software stacks such as Android.
