 Short Bio

Since late 2017, I am with the Department of Electronics, Optronics and Signal Processing (DEOS) of ISAE Supaéro as an associate professor.

From late 2014 to late 2017 , I was a researcher with the Mathematics and Algorithmic Sciences Lab of Huawei in Paris.

From 2011 to 2014, I was pursuing my PhD studies in the department of Telecommunications of CentraleSupélec (prev. Supélec) under the supervision of Prof. Pablo Piantanida.

In 2011, I obtained the engineering degree in "Telecommunications" and a research master degree in "Advanced Communication Systems" from Supélec (Eleuthere Mascart’s medal).
