Short bio

I received my engineering degree in computer science from the Compiegne University of Technology in 2006. I worked at ETSI (European Telecommunication Standards Institute) on Mobile IPv6 standardization. Then, I worked at the Dionysos group of the INRIA Rennes laboratory as research engineer where I managed the European project Anemone as well as worked on mobile IP environments. In 2009, I integrated the ASAP group to manage the deployment of the wireless sensor network dedicated to the SensLAB project. In January 2010, I started a Phd thesis focused on exploring the decentralization and the privacy in personalized recommendation systems with Anne-Marie Kermarrec as advisor. I defended my Phd in March 2013, my jury was composed of Amr El Abbadi (rapporter), Antonio Carzaniga, Rachid Guerraoui, Anne-Marie Kermarrec, Pascale Sébillot and Peter Triantafillou (rapporter). Then, I spent one year at INRIA to bootstrap the Mediego startup which aims to provide  personalization solution to content providers. After one year as postdoctoral researcher in the Connected Intelligence group at the Hubert Curien laboratory of Saint Etienne, and almost two years as postdoctoral researcher in the DRIM Research Group at LIRIS of Lyon, I am now assistant professor at INSA Lyon working on privacy and security in the Inria Privatics research group of the Citi laboratory.
