Post-doctoral Associate at Rutgers University
I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Lyon and the École Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Lyon, France, as part of the Avalon project team of the LIP laboratory.
Before that, I obtained a Master's degree from the University of Bordeaux.

Research activitiesI am a member of the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute at Rutgers University where I conduct research in the fields of Distributed Systems, Data Management, Cloud Computing and Energy.
Previously I was part of the Discovery initiative. In this project that federated researchers from multiple industries and Inria labs, I worked on massively distributed cloud computing infrastructures. In particular, I studied the energy model of these platforms and the management of data (virtual appliances and user data) in a context where the infrastructure is dynamic (datacenters may appear and disappear at any time) and users are mobile.
My research focuses on data management for distributed data-intensive applications, and in hybrid distributed infrastructures. I aim at providing means of using large and heterogeneous computing and storage ressources in a transparent way for the users, providing abstractions and models to ease the development of dava-intensive and high performance applications.
