Biography

I am a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Labs since 2018, associated with Smart Network Fabric lab, coordinating with Sameer Sharma and Tod Sizer, concentrating on disruptive networking paradigms as part of Future X vision. Between 2016-2017, I was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT and CentraleSupélec, working with Muriel Médard and Mérouane Debbah respectively. I obtained my Ph.D. at CentraleSupélec in December 2015, focusing on distributed caching methods in small cell networks. I am (or have been) in the executive or technical committee of flagship conferences including IEEE WCNC 2014, EuCNC 2015, IEEE BlackSeaCom 2015, IEEE ICC 2017, and PIMRC 2019. I am also a regular TPC member of IEEE conferences, and chair of several international workshops. I was a 2016 Exemplary Reviewer of the IEEE Transaction on Communications, representing fewer than 2% of all the reviewers. Moreover, I am the recipient of 2015 of the Supélec Foundation's Best PhD Thesis/Publications Prize, 2016 IEEE Communications Society Best Tutorial Paper Award, 2016 University of Paris-Saclay STIC Doctoral School Best Scientific Contribution Award, Finalist of 2016 Prix Le Monde, and 2017 EURASIP Best Paper Award for the Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking (JWCN). I am currently an associate editor of IEEE Communications Letters. My research interests are in the field of  information theory, machine learning and wireless communications.
