a short Bio

I am an alumnus from the "Ecole Normale Supérieure de Fontenay-aux-Roses" which I entered in 1975 (this ENS does not exist anymore, and has been replaced by ENS Lyon). I received the French "Agrégation de Mathématiques" in 1978 and a PhD degree in Automatics and Signal Theory from Paris-Sud University in 1981.

I am currently Professor in the Computer Engineering Department at TELECOM Bretagne, in Brest (France). I was head of this department between 2000 and 2015.

Before joining TELECOM Bretagne in 2000, I spent almost 20 years in France Telecom R&D where I analysed or designed mechanisms for specifying and controlling broadband traffic. I also participated for many years to both ITU and ETSI and contributed to the traffic management and QoS specification of ATM and IP standards.
My current research interests include the design and evaluation of traffic engineering methods for broadband networks, and of procedures related to QoS specification and management. In particular, in the last years, I have focused on broadband Access networks (Optical, wired and wireless), on the design of Metropolitan Optical Packet networks, and on controlling the deployment of applications on different networks and network elements. Most of these topics are related to evolutional approaches for next generation Internet.

My research team, ADOPNET (previously REOP) has joined the IRISA in January 2012.
