I am a professor (professeur des universités) at the QLIO department of IUT Nice Côte d'Azur. I was previously an associate professor (maître de conférences) at the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France. I am currently a member of SCALE, a joint research group between INRIA, I3S and CNRS. I am currently serving as a member of CNU 27.

I did most of my studies in a French overseas department called Reunion Island before moving to Nice for a Master and a PhD.

As part of my job, I teach at the computing department (about 230h/year) various courses such as Introduction to Algorithm, Parallelism, Distributed Systems...

I have defended my HDR, entitled "From HPC to Big Data: Models and Tools for Large Scale Middleware" on the 12th of February 2016.


My research interests lies in middleware for large scale distributed systems. I currently work on peer-to-peer overlays, Map Reduce and data stream analysis.

PC Members

I regularly serve on program committees for various workshops and conferences such as HPDC (2013, 2012, 2009, 2008, 2006), CCGrid (2017, 2013,2009,2008), EuroPar (2014,2011, 2009), IEEE Big-Data (2017-2013), IEEE BDSE (2013), MOD (2015, 2016), BDCloud (2015, 2014), IEEE SmartData (2017), IEEE DSS (2016, 2017)

I was the vice-chair of the ”Parallel and Distributed Programming” topic at Euro-Par2009 and the local chair of the ”Support Tools and Environments” topic of EuroPar 2011.
