Since 2014, I'm professor at Telecom SudParis. I'm a member of the Samovar laboratory and of the HP2 team of the computer science department, which investigates high-performance computing and systems. After having been the chair of the french chapter of the ACM SIGOPS from 2011 to 2014, I acted as treasurer from 2014 to 2016. I received the PhD degree from UPMC Sorbonne Université in 2005 and my "Habilitation à diriger les recherche", also from UPMC Sorbonne Université, in 2012. From 2006 to 2014, I was associate professor at UPMC Sorbonne Université, in the LIP6 laboratory, and in 2005, I performed postdoctoral research at the Université de Grenoble “Jospeh Fourier”.
