I am a CNRS researcher within the SARA team at LAAS and the SOLACE team in Toulouse, France.

Between 2019 and 2022, I was a postdoctoral researcher and then an assistant professor in the Stochastic Operations Research group at the Eindhoven University of Technology. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from 2016 to 2019 at Télécom Paris and Nokia Bell Labs, where I was supervised by Thomas Bonald and Fabien Mathieu. During this period, I worked frequently in the Laboratory of Information, Networking, and Communication Sciences (LINCS) in Paris.

Research interests

Stochastic networks, queueing theory, reinforcement learning, matching systems, datacenters, communication networks
