I am associate professor at the University of Rennes 1, France. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the ICSA laboratory of the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, working with Antonio Barbalace. I recently obtained my Ph.D. in computer science at the LIG laboratory of the University of Grenoble Alpes, France, under the supervision of Prof. Noel De Palma and Prof. Alain Tchana. My research interests include virtualization, cloud computing , and operating systems. Check out my CV.
