We are always looking for talented candidates for PhD thesis, intenships or engineers. Here is a list of selected open positions but speculative applications on topics that fits my research area will be also examined. Interested candidates should contact me.

A short bio

I am currently researcher at INRIA Nancy - Grand Est in the Madynes research group. I was research associate at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, reliability and Trust of University of Luxembourg in team of Prof. Dr. Thomas Engel (Netlab / Secan-Lab) from 2010 to 2014. I was previously a Ph.D. research engineer at INRIA Nancy - Grand Est. I have studied at ESIAL, a french leading school in computer science. In 2006, I obtained a Ms. degree in computer science and received his Ph.D. on robustness and identification of communicating applications from the University Henri Poincaré in Nancy, France, in December 2009. My Ph.D. was supervised by Olivier Festor and Radu State in LORIA/CNRS/INRIA Nancy - Grand Est.

I published in major conferences and journal on topics related to security and network management (IEEE TNSM, IEEE/ACM TON, IFIP/TC6 Networking, IFIP/IEEE IM, IFIP/IEEE NOMS, RAID, CNSM, IEEE WIFS).

I was involved reviewing process of several conferences (IEEE International Conference on Communications - ICC 2009; ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security - ASIACCS 2010) or international journal (IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management - TNSM, Journal of Network and Systems Management - JNSM). I am a TPC (Technical Program Committee) member of SETOP 2012 (International Workshop on Autonomous and Spontaneous Security), SAFECONFIG 2011 (Symposium on Configuration Analytics and Automation), IEEE LCN 2011 - Demo (Conference on Local Computer Networks), AIMS 2011 and 2012 (Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security) and I'm also part of the organization team of the 2012 edition.

Research interests

My main research interests are related to security and privacy including large scale anomaly detection, fingerprinting, security in vehicular networks and digital forensics.
