I am a researcher at Telefonica Research (Barcelona, Spain) since July 2016. 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 research activity focuses on design and performance evaluation of networking algorithms, software networking system design and experimental evaluation.  My current research interests include Content-Centric Networking/Information Centric Networking, programmable networks/SDN, Virtualization, Content Delivery Networks, Wearable networks 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.
