I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium and from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium in 2011, and my M.Sc degree in Electrical Engineering from ULB in 2007.

From 2007 to 2011 I worked as an F.R.S.-F.N.R.S. research fellow at the OPERA Department, ULB. From 2011 to 2013, I was with the Wireless Communications and Sensornets Lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara as a post-doctoral research scholar. From 2013 to 2015, I was with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. In 2016 I joined the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) as an Assistant Professor. I was granted the Alcatel-Lucent Bell Scientific Award 2012 for most innovative thesis in ICT in Belgium in 2012. I also received the WoWMoM 2012 conference best demo award and the EuCAP 2009 best propgation poster paper award. I am an active member in the European COST IRACON action, and during my thesis I participated to the COST 2100 action.

My research interest focus on proof-of-concept and embedded system design for communication systems, taking advanced theoretical ideas all the way to practice.
