Antoine B. Rauzy got his PhD in 1989 and his tenure (habilitation à diriger des recherches) in 1996, both in computer science. He works in the reliability engineering field for more than 20 years. He extended his research topics to systems engineering more recently. He published over 200 articles in international conferences and journals. He is on the advisory boards of several international conferences and journals and is regularly invited to deliver keynote talks in international conferences. He renewed mathematical foundations and designed state-of-the-art algorithms of probabilistic safety/risk assessment. Alone or with his students and collaborators, he developed safety/risk assessment software that are daily used in industry (Aralia, XFTA, MarkXPR). He is also the main designer of the AltaRica modeling language and the scientific advisor of the Open-AltaRica project (IRT SystemX). He managed numerous collaborations between academia and industry, in Europe, in the USA and in Japan, and has been the adviser of fifteen PhD theses.
