Bio  

Since March 2007 I'm a senior researcher and lecturer in the Communication Systems Group at ETH Zurich lead by Prof. Bernhard Plattner.
I was born in France on February 14th, 1978. I received degrees in Telecommunication engineering from the Institut National des Télécommunications (INT) , Evry and a MS in Computer Networks from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie Paris Universitas, in 2002.
I received my Ph.D from Université Pierre et Marie Curie Paris Universitas in 2006. Ph.D works were conducted in the Networks and Performance Analysis team under supervision of Professor Serge Fdida and CNRS research scientist Marcelo Dias de Amorim.
My research interests are in the area of content dissemination, mobility measurements, and mobility modeling.

Education:

2006 - Ph.D in Computer Science,
Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI)
2002 - MS in Computer Networks, Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI)
2002 - MS in Telecommunications, Institut National des Télécommunications (INT Evry).
