Short CV

I am an assistant professor at Université Grenoble Alpes. I joined the faculty in 2015. I received a Ph.D. from Université of Rennes in 2009, and  a Master degree in Computer Science from the same university in 2006.

Before joining Grenoble, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in different places: at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign during 1 year (Joint Laboraroty for Extreme Scale Computing); at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne during 3 years (Distributed Systems Laboratory); at Inria Bordeaux during 1 year (TADaaM research team). As a Ph.D. student, I was a member of the Inria Rennes MYRIADS research team and my great Ph.D. advisor was Christine Morin.
