I became interested in telecommunication networks as a graduate student at the University of Picardie Jules Verne (Amiens, France). Specifically, during my MS thesis, I carried out a number of studies on wireless sensor networks and the security mechanisms they offer.

Between 2009 and 2014, I was a web entrepreneur and created several web services and one startup.

From 2011, as a PhD candidate at Telecom ParisTech (Paris, France), I focused on distributed systems applied to intelligent transportation systems. My studies were focused on how sensors equipped with magnetometers and short-range wireless radio interfaces can be deployed along the road network so as to detect the passage of vehicles and exchange traffic count information, investigating their deployment and performance in the area of traffic light management. By means of in-network processing of such data, a WSN can manage traffic flows in a distributed way and without need for a central control point as it happens today – which implies lower latencies as well as more capillary, reactive and fault-resistant management of road traffic. I studied the topological features of WSN architectures for traffic management in large-scale urban areas, and developed distributed algorithms that run on the WSN and ease traffic congestion by means of adaptive traffic light control.

Between 2014 and 2017, I was a Research Associate at SnT/University of Luxembourg and responsible for the VehicularLab team. I was involved in several national and European initiatives related to sensing systems, vehicular communications and multimodal mobility. I have been working on other aspects related to sensor networks, including activity detection, mobile and wearable computing.

As of September 2017, I am Research and Technology Associate at Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST, ITIS department). My research interests focus on sensor networks and can be decomposed into three complementary topics: intelligent transportation, sensing and distributed systems
