Welcome to my page!

I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science (habilitated) at the University of Bordeaux, affiliated with LaBRI in the Distributed Computing group (Combinatorics and Algorithms department). Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow with Paola Flocchini and Nicola Santoro at the University of Ottawa (2009-12) and with Amiya Nayak and Ivan Stojmenovic (2008-09) at the same university. I obtained the PhD here in Bordeaux in 2007 (supervised by Serge Chaumette). My research interests include highly dynamic networks, distributed and non-distributed algorithms, and all kind of things that interact in a decentralized way. Besides theory, I enjoy programming and I am the main developer of JBotSim, a tool for fast prototyping of distributed algorithms in dynamic networks. I teach mainly at the IUT, and also at the UF d'Informatique and the ENSEIRB.
