Nicolas Bonneau graduated from Ecole Polytechnique in 2002 and obtained an engineer degree from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications in 2004. He received the M.S. degree in algorithmics from Université Paris VI, Paris, in 2003. He is currently working towards Ph.D. degree in wireless communications. His research interests include information theory, ad-hoc networks as well as the applications of random matrix theory and game theory to the analysis of wireless communication systems. Nicolas Bonneau defended with success his doctoral thesis Monday, September 24th, 2007.
