Biography

Since June 2017, I am a Research Associate at the Department of Geography at the University College London (UCL), working with Mirco Musolesi on digital traces analytics.

From 2016 to 2017, I was a Postdoctoral Associate (ATER, Attaché Temporaire d'Enseignement et de Recherche) at UPMC Sorbonne Universités (LIP6 / CNRS).

From 2013 to 2016, I was a Ph.D. Candidate at UPMC Sorbonne Universités under the supervision of Prométhée Spathis and Marcelo Dias de Amorim and defended my thesis titled "Intermodal data transport for massive offloading of conventional data networks" on October 11th, 2016 with High Honors.

I am currently interested in digital traces analytics, mobile phone data analysis, Delay-Tolerant Networks, and Vehicular Networks.
