Professor at ISAE in the Department of Complex Systems Engineering department - DISC and head of the team "Networks".

Also Member of the laboratory TéSA.

Ph.D. in Computer Science from University Paul-Sabatier of Toulouse.

Habilitation à diriger les recherches, 5 december 2008.

 Teaching Activity

I am involved in the first year course in computer science of the SUPAERO cursus which mainly concerns algorithmic and C language. I manage the course "Information theory : compression, coding and cryptography".

I am in charge of the course "Introduction to Multimedia Systems" (internal link) which presents an overview of information theory and compression algorithms.

I also present Error correcting codes and some satellite communications standards in the third year major "Computer science, Telecommunications and Networks".

 Research Activity

My research interests concern coding theory and computer networking. Recent works deals with erasure codes, cross-layer approaches and reliable protocols. Most of these works concerns satellite communications. Some of these contributions are :

- TETRYS protocol, which can be seen as the integration of coding and protocols, allowed us to obtain new results in the research domains of real-time video-conference and delay tolerant networks. All the latest news (publications, demos, projects) are on the TETRYS web site.

- Erasure codes
— "Because open, free AL-FEC codes and codecs matter" : You can find some of our source codes on openfec.org managed by Vincent Roca.
— Other erasure codes are developped in the ANR project FEC4CLOUD with our colleagues of University of Nantes Benoît Parrein and Nicolas Normand.

- Satellite communications : random access methods and optical communications.

- Involved in the following standardization processes :
— with V. Roca at IETF ( RFC 5510, RFC 6816 et RFC 6865 )
— with V. Roca and Expway at 3GPP : ( RS/LDPC codec )
— with CNES for DVB-NGH
