About Me

I am an associate professor at the Ecole de Technologie Superieure (ETS) of Montreal, Canada.

Before joining ETS, I was a researcher at the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation, Inria (2014-2020) and a research staff member at IBM Research (2011-2014). I have published over 60 academic papers and deposited more than 20 patent applications. I hold a PhD in Computer Science (2009) from The University of Melbourne, Australia, with a thesis topic on resource allocation among computational grids. Other relevant facts:

  • Recipient of an IBM Research Division Award.
  • Postdoc on energy efficiency of large-scale distributed systems at INRIA, Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon, France.
  • Member of the ACM.
  • I like to code.

My research interests include:

  • Reinforcement learning for reconfiguring data stream processing applications.
  • Elasticity of data stream processing applications on edge and fog computing.
