Biography

I am leading an optical networks research department called "Dynamic optical networking and switching" within Nokia Bell Labs in Paris-Saclay.

Until September 2009 I was with Athens Information Technology (AIT), where I was technical leader on behalf of AIT of the project DICONET, partially funded by the European commission. In addition to a managerial role, I lead research about routing and wavelength assignment and monitoring in transparent optical networks.

Until August 2008, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University. I worked on various projects, including transparent optical networks, monitoring for IP and transparent optical networks, compressed sensing, machine learning applied to routing and wavelength assignment and TCP traffic classification, car parking assisted by GPS and smartphones.

I gained a Ph.D. in August 2006 under the supervision of Pr. Maïté Brandt-Pearce in the Optical Multiuser Communications group in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Virginia (UVa), where I worked on physical layer impairment modeling in optical fibers, routing and wavelength assignment, and cross-layer optical network modeling. I used to work for the Multimedia Networks Group in the Computer Science department at UVa where I gained a MS in Computer Science in August 2002 about resiliency in MPLS multicast networks. I also hold an engineering degree (Diplôme d'Ingénieur) from Ecole Centrale de Lille, France.
