years after I started working with Sprint, we are all excited to move
back to California where I will work as a Principal Engineer for
Google, in the Network Operations team.
I have a PhD in Computer Science

Outstanding experience with amazing people. We
designed a unique measurement infrastructure made of GPS synchronized
packet collection, routing events, SNMP data, and active probing. Everything had to be invented at the time. At
Sprint, we also did seminal work on DiffServ together with Martin May, Jean Bolot
and Jon Crowcroft. In
2003, I moved to
Research in Cambridge
where the objective was to create a multi-disciplinary research group
to help INTELidentify
technologies. This is where we started Pocket Switched Networks (also
known as "Haggle"), and designed new anomaly detection techniques for
the Internet, among
cool projects. I joined THOMSON
October 2005 to launch a research lab on
new communication services and platforms for contents delivery. The Paris lab
pioneered research on home networking, home (nano) data centers and CPE

July 2008 to April 2009, I acted as the
CTO of Thomson Corporate
Research. In May 2009, I became Chief Scientist for Thomson, in charge
term innovation strategy and relationship with academics (among other
stuff ). In January 2010, THOMSON became TECHNICOLOR.
In 2011, I created from scratch a research lab in Palo Alto. This has
been an opportunity to re-work with old friends such as Jean Bolot and
Nina Taft. The Palo Alto lab (now in Los Altos) was performing research
on user understanding, privacy, and recommendations. I joined SAFRAN in
September 2015 as CTO of SAFRAN
the new entity created by SAFRAN to develop a data culture
in the group and to create value from data collected in group
companies. This is quite a different challenge for me as SAFRAN
is a business entity, not a research or innovation lab. I am also
involved with SAFRAN TECH, the SAFRAN R&T organisation. Since
january 2017, I have been appointed SAFRAN "emeritus expert", the
highest level of technical expertise inside SAFRAN. I will leave SAFRAN in May 2018.
