Karine Arnout


Karine Arnout is a research assistant and Ph.D. student in the Chair of Software Engineering held by Prof. Dr. Bertrand Meyer at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, Switzerland. She is a member of the ECMA Technical Group for the standardization of the Eiffel method and language (TC39-TG4). Her areas of research include Eiffel and the Microsoft .NET technology. She is interested in the idea of turning Design Patterns into reusable components, and is also active in the area of extracting closet contracts from non-Eiffel libraries, including .NET components.

Before joining Bertrand Meyer's team at ETH, she worked at Interactive Software Engineering, Inc. (the former name of Eiffel Software Inc.) in Santa Barbara, California, where she contributed to several proprietary technologies and to porting ESI's EiffelStudio to the .NET Framework.

Her engineering degree is from the École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne (ENSTBr) in France.
