Short Bio:

Christoph Neumann is principal scientist at Technicolor Research & Innovation. He received his MSc from the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) and his MEng from INPG in Grenoble (France) in 2002. After spending 3 years at INRIA (France), he obtained his Ph.D. in 2005 from the University Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France). In 2006, he joined Thomson Corporate Research in Paris as a postdoctoral researcher working on P2P systems. From 2007 to 2009, he worked first as a Product Line Technical Manager and then as R&D project manager on P2P delivery systems, and content marking & tracking systems. In 2009 he came back to research by joining Technicolor Research and Innovation, working on networks, security and distributed systems. He defended his habilitation thesis (HDR) in 2016.
