Starting November 2018, I am on extended academic leave. This website, as well as contact information, etc. are no longer up-to-date. Please check for more information

Short bio

  I am a Full Professor at the Computer Science and Networking department of Telecom ParisTech and at the LIX department of Ecole Polytechnique. I am the leader of Cisco’s Chair NewNet@Paris.

  I received my Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (HDR )from UPMC (2010), my PhD (2005) and MSc (2001) degrees from Politecnico di Torino.

  Before joining Telecom ParisTech in 2006, I worked with the Telecommunication Network Group of the Electrical Engineering department at Politecnico di Torino. Between september 2003 and august 2004, I held a Visiting Researcher position in the Computer Science division at University of California, Berkeley.


  I am very passionate in my work and always open for new challenges. Currently I put my passion at work on research interests such as Machine learning, Internet traffic measurement, Information centric networks and high speed all-sofware networking. Formerly I also worked on congestion control, green networking, peer-2-peer networks, traffic engineering vehicular networks. To summarize my achievements in these last few years at Telecom ParisTech, I have coauthored 9 patents and 150+ papers in leading conferences (including IEEE INFOCOM, ACM SIGCOMM, ACM CoNEXT and ACM IMC) and journals (including IEEE JSAC, ACM/IEEE TON, ACM CCR, IEEE TMM).

  I am honored to have received distinctions such as the IETF Applied Network Research Prize (2016), and the Google Faculty Research Award (2015) and several other awards (see below). For what matters, Google scholar reports 4700+ citations, with an H-index of 30+ and a i10index of 80+, and more than 10 papers with over 100 citations each.

   Whenever possible, I put datasets and code on this Webpage: I am delighted that our work and had impact on IETF standards LEDBAT WG, that 4000+ people have found ccnSim useful for their research, and that 1000+ people browsed and used our anycast dataset. Do not hesitate to wander throughout the pages in this website, as we keep pushing new stuff!

   These achievements wouldn’t have been possible without the help of several MSc, PhD students and PostDocs, which have been funded mainly through European research projects (such as FP7 mPlane, NAPA-WINE, Celtic TIGER, TIGER2 and TRANS, ANR Connect) and industrial grants (with Alcatel Lucent Bell Labs, Orange, Google and Cisco to name a few).

  In terms of community services, I co-chair the RT2, that federates the Institut Mines-Telecom researchers working on networking domain (about 50 people from 5 schools in France), serve in the Steering committee of ITC and AINTEC, chaired ACM ICN (2016), the last 2 editions of ACM SIGCOMM AINTEC (2013,2014) and of the ACM SIGCOMM PhD School on Traffic Monitoring and Analysis (2014,2018) and participated in the program committees of 50+ conferences including ACM CoNEXT, IEEE INFOCOM of which I am Distinguished Member (2015,2016,2017). I am a Senior member of the IEEE (2013) and Senior member of the ACM (2015).

  More details about myself can be found in this curriculum vitae (updated about once per year, also available in this longer academic version). Elsewhere in this page, you’ll find my publications and patents, my teaching activities, some open source datasets, demos and software, and the list of weekly seminars I organize.
