I am Kunal, I am passionate about contributing to society by creating solutions to some existing problems in computer science. I enjoy long conversations on topics related to technology and philosophy.

Short Biography 

Currently, I am a researcher & an engineer in computer science working at the LIST institute (i.e., Laboratory for Integration of Systems and Technology) within the CEA (i.e., French Alternative Energies and Atomic EnergyCommission).


Since Feb. 2020, I am a researcher at CEA LIST. Overall, I have 10+ years of work experience in the domain of CS & IT. My research experiences include working as a Postdoc in a joint research project with CEA LIST & ESTACA, and as a research engineer at he Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE), France (acquired by Naver Labs Europe since 2017). My other industrial experiences include working at Adobe Systems (India) and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (India).

I received a PhD in computer science from Universit√© Paris-Saclay, which was conducted at Telecom SudParis and funded by CEA LIST. During this PhD, I was a part of the "Executable Language Engineering and Optimization Laboratory" (LIDEO) at CEA LIST and the SAMOVAR lab (UMR 5157) at TSP.  At CEA LIST, my lab works on open source technology supported by Eclipse called the Papyrus framework. It is a well known and extensively used for model-driven engineering (MDE) in both industry and academia.

I completed a joint masters program in European Union (EU) at universities in Germany, Greece, the Netherlands each. This masters was fully funded by the EU under the prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship program. I hold an MSc (2013) in computer science from the University of Stuttgart, Germany and an MSc (2013) in Information Management from the Tilburg University, the Netherlands.
