I am the Director of Telefonica Research and I lead a team of researchers in Machine Learning/Deep Learning, HCI, Privacy, Networks and Systems. Currently, I am also leading ARIANA, a Telefonica Innovation startup project leveraging Artificial Intelligence for Automatic Network Actions. Previously I worked at Bell Labs (Paris, France) from September 2009 to June 2016 and six months at NICTA (Sydney, Australia) in 2016 as visiting researcher.

My personal research areas are networking, systems and protocols. My current research interests include network measurements, AI/ML for networks, NFV/SDN, wearable networking, security, blockchain and distributed systems.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Paris Diderot-Paris 7 university in 2009. My Ph.D. Thesis was a collaboration between Orange Labs and INRIA through a CIFRE contract, and focused on algorithms for peer-to-peer multimedia streaming. I received my M.S. in Networking engineering at Politecnico di Torino and Eurecom Institute of Sophia Antipolis in 2006. I also obtained a Research Master in Networking and distributed systems at Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis.
