About me

I was born in Toulon, France, in 1987. I received the M.Sc. degree from Telecom Paristech, France (ingénieur Telecom ParisTech) in 2009 and the M.Sc. degree and Lic. Eng. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), in 2009 and 2012, respectively. Since October 2009, I was working towards a Ph.D. degree in telecommunications in the Communication Theory Division at KTH and I graduated in November 2014.  My advisors were Prof. Mikael Skoglund (co-supervisor Associate Prof. Ragnar Thobaben).

I am working as a Research Engineer in Huawei France Research Center, Mathematics and Algorithmic Sciences Lab, Paris since December 2014.
