- I have been a postdoctoral associate in the Telemedia, Networks and Systems Group at the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science between September’95 and September’96. In this group, I have been working in the SpectrumWare project headed by David Tennenhouse. I have designed and implemented in software part of a GSM base station which has been integrated into the VuSystem.
- I have done my PhD studies in the High-Speed Networking Research Group RODEO at INRIA Sophia Antipolis. My previous research (done in particular with Jean Bolot and Christian Huitema) were focused on designing, implementing, and evaluating multimedia applications over the Internet. Specifically, I have developed IVS, one of the first videoconferencing application for the Internet. This software videoconferencing system allows multicast delivery of audio and video over the Internet. I also developed specific error control and rate control mechanisms for transmission of video streams. These mechanisms regulate the output rate of the codecs based on feedback information about the network state. They have been designed specifically to work in a multicast environment.
