I am an Associate Professor (Maître de Conférences) in computer science at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon and I am a member of LIP. I’m also co-founder and CTO of NetMicroscope.

My research focuses broadly on leveraging emergent technologies to engineer software systems designed to measure and improve network service performance.

Before joining ENS Lyon, I was a Research Scientist at Nokia Bell Labs as well as a Post-Doc in the MiMove group at Inria, Paris. I obtained a Ph.D. from WINLAB at Rutgers University.
