Short Bio:

Holder of a post Graduate Degree Science and Material Structure (1993 - Grenoble University), I worked a couple of years in the R&D department of Legrand Electric Group. Then I decide to go in for Computer Science by following a long training specialized in software engineering and Telecom. I started working as a software engineer for France Telecom R&D and then I joined a start-up specialized in IP visiophony services (France Telecom spin-off).

I was hired by THOMSON in 2002. I worked in the Advanced VoIP LAB for 4 Years working for european project (HomeNet2Run, MediaNet) dealing with multimedia conversational Services for the home.

I joined Technicolor Paris Lab Research group in 2006. I am in charge of developing Research Measurement tools and deploy Testbeds infrastructure and demos for the Lab.

Since 2012, I'm specialized in design, implementation and deployment of solutions for collecting and exploiting massive amount of user data (Big Data project). In that area, we designed a scalable architecture that use the raw data collected at Home Internet Gateway level to provide advanced real-time Monitoring and User Profiling tools. This solution was successfully deployed by an European ISP.
