I am a postdoctoral researcher at UiT the Arctic University of Norway, in Tromsø. I am working as part of the Distributed Arctic Observatory (DAO) project. The context of the project is about the development of energy efficient distributed systems for the monitoring of the Arctic Tundra. The project covers several research areas such as Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), network simulations, energy efficiency, distributed systems, machine learning etc. I am also working on the development of a flow-level network simulator dedicated to the study of wired and wireless distributed systems.

I did a PhD funded by ENS Rennes at the IRISA laboratory as a member of the Myriads project-team. I worked on the simulation of large-scale networks for performance and energy predictions of Fog infrastructures, under the supervision of Martin Quinson and Anne-Cécile Orgerie. I developed a wired networks energy consumption model and a Wi-Fi performance model for the simulation of dense/large-scale networks. I worked with several network simulators such as SimGrid and ns-3 and deployed various experiments on the clusters of the Grid’5000 test-bed.

  Areas of Interest


  • Network Simulation   Packet-Level and Flow-Level.
  • Energy Efficiency   Network communications and algorithms optimization toward energy saving including AI/ML methods.
  • Power Monitoring   Power monitoring hardware/software for computer systems.
  • Wireless Technologies   Wi-Fi, LoRa, NbIoT etc.

Operating System

  • x86 kernels   I am fascinated by Computer Architecture and Operating System development.
    I work on a 32-bits x86 multi-tasking kernel called Bringelle and similar 64-bit kernel called Boucane.
    This work aims to popularize Operating System development by making it accessible to everyone.
    Current online resources are often non-exhaustive enough and do not approach the subject from a complete beginner perspective.


  • Chess   I enjoy playing chess since a couple of years. We can play together on Lichess :) or OTB!
    I am working on a chess game analysis software called OChess and on various C++ chess libraries:
    • pgnp an efficient PGN parser
    • chessarbiter that allows to arbitrate chess game in C++
    • uciadapter a cross-platform library to communicate with UCI chess engines in C++
    • cgeditor A dependency-free chess game editor library written in C++
    • chess-move-interface A standard chess half-move (ply) interface for C++ libraries interoperability
    Feel free to contact me if you want more information about the projects. I would be very happy :D
    To discuss about OChess, an irc channel is available at irc://
    Also you can pass by my chess zone.
