I am the Director of Telefonica Research and I lead a team of researchers in Machine Learning/Deep Learning, HCI, Privacy/Security, Networks and Systems. Currently, I am also leading ARIANA, a Telefonica Innovation startup project leveraging Artificial Intelligence for Automatic Network Actions.

I work at the boundaries of research and innovation, to advance state of the art in technology areas relevant to business and ICT at large, and ensure the successful exploitation of research outputs. I also promote the dissemination of their work both through publications and I am deeply involved in the research and innovation communities.

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. 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.
