Since September 2022, I am a full Professor at Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (Toulouse INP) where I am teaching at the Numerical Sciences department of ENSEEIHT engineering school. I do my research in the RMESS team of the Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (a.k.a. IRIT laboratory). Previously, I was an Associate Professor (Maître de Conférences) at the same institutions since September 2011.
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
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.
I 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.
I 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.
A list of my publications is available on this webpage.
IRT EDEN (2020 - 2024) - funded by IRT St Exupery and partners of the EDEN projet. This collaborative project aims at evaluating the determinism of Time Sensitive Networking in the context of embedded systems (automotive, aeronautics and space). I am investigating, together with Jean-Luc Scharbarg, the reliability and determinism of its synchronisation protocol IEEE802.1AS.
GOIA Project (Oct. 2019 - Sept. 2022) - funded by APR UFTMiP and Région Occitanie. My Co-PI is Dima Shepelyansky (CNRS, LPT), and the goal is to investigate the use of a Google Matrix for Artificial Intelligence of Complex Networks. Complex networks of interest are Internet public peering and world trade networks.
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).
GUINESS 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 Brazil. s
