I am a Professor in Distributed Computer Systems at the Université de Rennes 1 (ESIR) and IRISA/INRIA in Brittany, France. Prior to that, I was with Lancaster University (UK) from 2005 to 2012, where I held a Lectureship (roughly tenured Assistant Professor).
I hold a PhD from Université Toulouse III (France) for a work performed at LAAS/CNRS, a Diplom der Informatik from Universität Stuttgart (Germany), and a Diplôme d’Ingénieur from Ecole Centrale Paris (France). I enjoy working with the industry and with partners from other disciplines. This includes past visits and placements at major industrial labs (e.g. at Bayer AG and Daimler in Germany, AT&T Labs in the US), and more recently collaborative projects with Anglian Water Ltd and Cefas/Defra in the UK.
