Research interests

He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Université de Lorraine (France) in 2005 about performance evaluation of switched Ethernet architectures based on network calculus modeling. This work was applied in the framework of the project FP6 STREP NeCST Networked Control Systems Tolerant to faults (2004-2007) and continued in 2006 as researcher in the Laboratory of Process Control and Automation at the Aalto University (Finland). From 2006 as Associate Professor, he is researcher at the Centre de Recherche en Automatique de Nancy. His interests include performance evaluation, network automation (software-defined), green it, quality of service/experience/sustainability metrics for networked control systems, real-time networking as well as wireless communications.
