I am a Principal Research Scientist at Technicolor Research Center in Los Altos, CA. My current research interests include data privacy and personalization. My work leverages techniques from information theory, random matrix theory, statistics and privacy theory, and aims at bridging theory and practice.

From 2009 to 2011, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA. I was working in the Network Coding and Reliable Communications group, led by Prof. Muriel Médard.

I received my Ph.D. (2008) and my Diplôme d’Ingénieur (Master, 2005) in Electrical Engineering from TELECOM ParisTech / EURECOM, majoring in Mobile Communications. My research work was conducted under the supervision of Prof. Mérouane Debbah and Prof. David Gesbert, and was supported by a grant from the French Defense Body DGA.

In 2008, I was a visiting graduate student at Alcatel-Lucent Chair on Flexible Radio at SUPELEC, France. In Fall 2007, I was a visiting graduate student at MIT/LIDS, USA, working with Prof. Muriel Médard. In summer 2006, I worked as a research intern at Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), South Korea, on precoding for wireless cooperative networks. From March to August 2005, I was a research intern at CEA/LETI, France working on blind equalization in MIMO MC-CDMA mobile networks. In Summer 2004, I was an engineering intern at the mobile operator Bouygues Telecom, France, working on GPRS/EDGE mobile networks.
