Short Bio

I am a full Professor, CNU 61, at INSA Rennes and a member of IETR laboratory (IETR – UMR 6164) since 2023. Before that, I have been Associated Professor at the same institutions since 2009. I have been graduated in signal processing and digital communication from University Côte d’Azur (UCA) in 2004 and I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering from Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA Lyon) in 2008 and my Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches (HDR) from University of Rennes 1 in 2018. During my PhD I was with France Telecom R&D in Grenoble (France) and I worked on the analytical performance study for mobile communications considering shadowing and fading, and multi-user detectors for wireless communications. I also have been teaching assistant at INSA Lyon and at IUT R&T Grenoble. In 2008, I held a post-doctoral position at ETIS laboratory, Cergy-Pontoise (France) during 12 months and I was teaching assistant at ENSEA and University of Cergy-Pontoise. Since 2009, I have lead and contributed to several industrial and academic projects, e.g. the CominLabs project TEPN (2013-2017), ANR ARBURST (2016-2021) and I developed collaborations with Princeton University and Aalborg University. I also served in several international conference technical program committees and I organized two international workshops and one winter school on signal processing and information theory for IoT.

Research Interests

My current research interests include signal processing and reinforcement learning for digital communications, and finite block length information theory.
