I am a senior research scientist at Inria Sophia Antipolis, France, in the project-team DIANA. I also made two academic breaks one from 2000 to 2004 to join the startup Castify Networks as an Architect and then CTO assistant, and another one from 2016 to 2020 to found and be the CEO of the startup ElectroSmart.

I received my Ph.D. (docteur ès sciences) in Communication Systems in 2000 and by HDR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches) in 2012. I did my thesis work at the Institut Eurecom, France, in the Ernst Biersack's working on Multicast Congestion Control. I also received a master degree in mathematics (maîtrise de mathématiques) for the Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France.
