ADARS (2021-2024) - FNR CORE

The ADARS (Automating the Design of Autonomous Robot Swarms) project aims to propose a unique approach to automatically generate behaviours for distributed aerospace and space systems (DASS) thanks to a cross-fertilisation between multi-objective optimisation and machine learning techniques. ADARS will demonstrate through specifically designed software simulations and real field tests with multi-rotor drones, that state-of-the-art results can be obtained on two challenging DASS applications: swarm formation for a counter UAV system and swarm formation of small satellites for asteroid observation. Role: PI.

HUNTED (2018-2021) - Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG - US Navy)

The HUNTED project (Heterogeneous multi-swarms of UNmanned auTonomous systEms for mission Deployment) aims at designing a novel generation of mobility models for heterogeneous multi-swarms of Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) for surveillance and tracking of imminent threats. Role: co-PI.

Technical Standardisation for Trustworthy ICT, Aerospace, and Construction (2021 - 2024) - ILNAS/UL

The proposed follow-up ILNAS-SnT research programme 2021-2024 is consciously sector-oriented and targets three highly relevant growth sectors for Luxembourg’s economy, in conformity with the national technical standardization strategy 2020-2030, that will deepen data and AI capabilities and enable a steady potential for innovation. The three sectors are a) ICT, b) Aerospace, and c) Construction. The economic power for these three domains is strongly determined by normative values notably related to trustworthiness, security, and privacy. Consequently, policies, regulations, and standards are required to be established to enhance trust in each particular domain-specific ecosystem

Digital Trust in Smart ICT (2017 - 2021) - ILNAS/UL

Following the successful launch of the University Certificate “Smart ICT for business innovation” in September 2015 at the University of Luxembourg in partnership with the Institut luxembourgeois de la normalisation, de l'accréditation, de la sécurité et qualité des produits et services (ILNAS); the interdisciplinary center for security reliability and trust (SnT) and ILNAS entered a partnership to jointly develop Luxembourg as a European centre of excellence and innovation for secure, reliable, and trustworthy Smart ICT systems and services.

ASIMUT - Aid to SItuation Management based on MUltimodal, MUltiUAVs, MUltilevel acquisition Techniques (2015 - 2017) - European Defense Agency (EDA)

The ASIMUT project aims at decreasing the operator workflow during a surveillance mission lead by swarms of UAVs. To this end, innovative algorithms are developed increasing detection and data fusion capabilities, and increasing the swarms of UAVs autonomy. Role: Task leader

IShop - Internet Shopping Optimization (2014 - 2017) - FNR POLLUX

Internet Shopping Optimization Project (IShOP) is an INTER POLLUX project, co-funded by Luxembourg National Research Funds (FNR) and the Polish National Research Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR). This project proposes innovative and realistic models for different typical online shopping operations, supported by strong mathematical and operational research fundamentals, and well balanced with lightweight computational algorithms. These models are designed in order to allow the optimization of such transactions. Finding accurate solutions to the defined problems implies both lowering customer expenses and favouring market competitiveness. Role: Work package leader.

Green@Cloud (2012-2016) - FNR CORE

Green@Cloud is an INTER CNRS-FNR project. This project is a collaboration between the Interdisciplinary Center of Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) of the University of Luxembourg and the Laboratoire d'Informatique Fondamentale de Lille (LIFL) of the University of Lille 1 (France). The project Green@Cloud aims at developing an energy-aware scheduling framework able to reduce the energy needed for high-performance computing and networking operations in large-scale distributed systems (data centers, clouds, grids).

EvoPerf (2011-2015) - UL

EvoPerf is a University of Luxembourg project. This project takes place in the ILIAS laboratory of the Computer Science and Communications (CSC) Research unit. By choosing a system biomedicine application in collaboration with the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB), EvoPerf aims at performing interdisciplinary research. EvoPerf aims at providing the bases for robust and performance guaranteed evolutionary computations. Such methods have a large spectrum of applications. Role: Work package leader
