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 chevalier of the Palmes Académiques (french distinction for contributions in pedagogy).
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 IEEE Globecom, IEEE ICC, Packet Video, ACM Netgames, ACM MMSys, ACM Nossdav, and ACM Multimedia.
Other communities duties include my contribution to an ACM project related to the reproducibility of results in scientific publication and to the IEEE Multimedia Cloud Computing Interest Group (MCCIG).
I have been in the PhD defense jury of several students who I have not tutored: Eliya Buyukkaya (2011), Samuel Bernard (2011), Daouda Ahmat (2014), Yacine Benchaïb (2014), Lissandro Linguaglossa (2016 - reviewer) and Andrea Araldo (2016 - reviewer). I have also been in the HDR defense jury of Cyril Concolato (2016) and Christoph Neumann (2016).
