Research Focus:

Pierre-Etienne Poirot is a PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Illinois Institute of Technology. He received a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the ENSEA engineering school, France and a Master in Computer Science from IIT, Chicago in 2004. His research interests include distributed and self-adaptive systems.


  • Methods and architectures for self-adaptive systems
  • Coordination model for distributed systems
  • Top-down design methods for specifying emergent behavior from local-based coordination mechanisms
