I am a teacher in a "grande école", where education matters. I am a strong advocate of "active learning", as illustrated by my involvement in project-oriented teaching, two academic papers in this area, and my contributions to Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC).
I am a reviewer. I am in the board of IEEE MMTC R-letters. I am also in the Program Committee of well-known conferences, including Globecom 2012-2013-2014, ICC 2013-2014, ICCCN 2012-2013, Packet Video 2012-2013, Netgames 2012 and Nossdav 2014.
