I'm permanent researcher, working at Inria, a French public research institute. Since 2013 I am part of the Privatics Inria research team that focuses on privacy. Before that, in 2000-2012, I was member of the Planete Inria research team whose goal was to carry out research in the context of protocol and applications for the Internet. I also spent three years, in 1997-2000, working as an Associate Professor in the Pierre et Marie Curie University (Paris 6), in the Network and Performances group.
My main research topics are on privacy considerations, in particular for mobile devices and operating systems.
It began with the Inria-CNIL Mobilitics project focussing on privacy and smartphones, the PhD of Jagdish Achara, and now continues with the IOTics ANR project on privacy and smart-* devices that I lead, and the phD of Mathieu Thiery.
I am now the PRIVATICS team leader.
Before that, I've spent a lot of time (and continue) working on robust content distribution techniques, and more precisely on transport protocols (e.g. FLUTE/ALC, FECFRAME) and forward erasure correction (FEC) codes (e.g. LDPC-Staircase, GLDPC codes).
I am also
largely involved in IETF standardisation activities
and lead with M.J. Montpetit the
"Coding for efficient Network Communciations" NWCRG research group of IRTF.
Here is a synthetic view of what I've done in this domain, from the 3GPP Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Services (MBMS/eMBMS) point of view:
