I am currently a Research Associate in the Communications and Information Systems Group (CISG) at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London (UCL), UK. I obtained my Ph.D. in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from UCL in January 2014. Before joining UCL, I received a "Diplôme d’ingénieur de Télécom SudParis" (equivalent of a Master’s Degree in ICT Engineering) from Télécom SudParis, FRANCE, in 2009.



My research interests are in the areas of software-defined networks (in particular applied to network resource management), cache/content management, adaptive network resource management, energy efficiency and economic management.

The objective of my Ph.D. thesis, entitled "Engineering Self-Managed Adaptive Networks", was to address, through realistic and specific in-network self-management applications, some of the main engineering challenges raised by the design and the implementation of self-managed adaptive networks. The thesis can be downloaded here.
