Biography


I was born in Bhamdoun, Lebanon, in 1967. I received the Engineering degree in telecommunications from St Joseph University, Faculté d'ingénierie (ESIB), Beirut, Lebanon, in 1989, the Masters degree from Telecom ParisTech in 1990, the PhD degree in signal processing from Université Paris Est Marne-la-Vallée in 2000 and the "Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches" from Université Paris-Sud (Orsay) in 2006.
Between 1990 and 2000, I worked in the telecommunications industry with Philips T.R.T., then with FERMA, as a signal processing engineer. In 2001, I joined the academia as a faculty member at Supélec. In 2006, I joined the CNRS, where I am now a research director based at Telecom ParisTech, Comelec department.
My research and teaching activities are devoted to the mathematical tools for signal processing, digital communications and statistical estimation. My research themes consist mainly in the large random matrix theory and its applications in the above fields, and in the optimization algorithms in random environments.
I served as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing between 2007 and 2010. I am currently "directeur scientifique adjoint" of the research group ("groupe de recherche", GdR) ISIS.
