Pierre Boulet received a PhD of computer science in 1996 from the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France. He is currently professor of computer science at the University of Lille, France.
His interests range from parallelism, compilation, embedded system co-design to model driven engineering and synchronous languages. He is currently investigating how to program time and energy aware embedded applications on post-Moore architectures, and help design neuromorphic accelerators. He initiated the research on neuromorphic computing at CRIStAL and IRCICA with colleagues from nanoelectronics (IEMN lab) in 2012.
He was deputy director of LIFL then CRIStAL labs from 2008 to 2017. He has been vice-president for digital transformation of the University of Lille since 2018. He is a member of the HiPEAC EU support action, and of the IEEE and ACM professional societies.
