Sacha Ayoun is a PhD student at the Department of Computing at Imperial, under the supervision of Professor Philippa Gardner. He is currently working on Gillian, a parametric symbolic execution tool for symbolic testing, verification and automatic compositional testing.

As an undergraduate, Sacha worked at the French Alternative and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) as a researcher-engineer intern in 2017. His goal was to improve the Frame-C abstract interpreter to better handle file descriptors. In 2018 he completed his Supelec Engineer Diploma at CentraleSupelec as well as his MSc in Advanced Computing at Imperial.
