On July 11th, 2019, I defended my Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches entitled "Modélisations et Optimisation Multicritère de Réseaux"
Head of the Embedded Networks and Cyber-Physical Systems group of RMESS research team at IRIT
September 2011, I am an Associate Professor at Toulouse INP - ENSEEIHT
engineering school, working in the IRIT laboratory.
- From April to August 2011, I participated for INRIA in the GreenTouch consortium, whose goal is to reduce 1000 times the energy consumption of future communication technologies.
- Between May 2007 and December 2010, I was pursuing research as a Marie Curie
OIF post-doctoral fellow at both Stevens Institute of Technology (May 2007 - Dec. 2009) and INSA Lyon (Jan. 2010-Dec. 2010).
- In 2006, I joined
the Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ, USA in 2006 as a
post-doctoral fellow where I’ve been working with Pr. Cristina Comaniciu on game theoretic solutions for
wireless sensor networks.
received the Ph.D., the M.Sc. and the Diplôme d’Ingénieur en Télécommunications from the Institut
des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA Lyon), France in resp.
October 2005, September 2002 and June 2002.
During my Ph.D., I was supported by INRIA
Rhône-Alpes as an ARES
project team member. I was also appointed as a teaching assistant by INSA lyon (Monitorat) from Sept.
2002 until Sept. 2005.
have been awarded a Marie
Curie OIF Fellowship in 2006 for a 3-year post-doctoral
appointment in both Stevens Institute of Technology (April 2007 – April 2009)
and CITI laboratory, INSA Lyon (April 2009 – April 2010) for the called
‘Distributed Multiobjective Optimization for Ad Hoc
Wireless Networks’ (DistMO4WNet) project.
- APPLIGOOGLE Project (Jan. 2016 - Dec. 2018) - funded by Défi MASTODONS 2016 of CNRS. PI is Dima Shepelyansky
(CNRS, LPT), and the goal is to favour exchanges between groups
interested in the Google matrix analysis of complex networks. Special
interest is given to mobile networks (IRIT), Omics networks (Andrei Zinovyev at Institut Curie) and Wikipedia + trade networks (LPT).
Project (June 2015 - May 2016) - funded by Région Midi Pyrénées
- Appel Easynov 2015. Together with Adrien van den Bosche (IRIT),
Thierry Val (IRIT) and Maple High Tech, the project discusses efficient synchronization of wireless sensor networks.
- GOMOBILE Project (Nov. 2015 - Oct. 2018) - funded by University of Toulouse APR - Région Midi Pyrénées. Together with Dima Shepelyansky (CNRS, LPT) the project discusses the 'GOogle matrix analysis of MOBILE networks'.
- MACACO Project (Nov. 2013 - Apr. 2017) - funded by the 2012 CHIST-ERA
program on Context and Content-Adaptive Communication Networks. I am
the Principal investigator for INP Toulouse - IRIT. This project groups
researchers from Inria France, SUPSI in Switzerland, University of
Birmingham, CNR Italy and Universidad Federal de Minas Gerais in
consortium: A Global research initiative to improve by a factor of
1,000 the energy efficiency in Information and Communication
Technologies by 2015.
