Short Biography

I am Associate Professor at the Communication Systems Department at EURECOM, France, and conducting research in wireless vehicular networks. Previously, I led the Traffic Telematics Junior Research Group at the Institute of Telematics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT),Germany.

My research interests are related to the optimization of the vehicular wireless channel usage, to the investigation of cooperative ITS strategies and to the characterization of the mutual relationship between vehicular mobility and heterogeneous vehicular communication.

I hold a M.Sc. degree and a Dr. ès sc. (PhD) degree in telecommunication from the Swiss Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland.

Professional Activities

I reguarly involved in various workshop and conference organizations (co-chair: 1st IEEE ICC workshop on Dependable Vehicular Communication (DVC) in 2015, 1st and 2nd Workshop on Emulation Tools, Methodology and Techniques (EMUTools) in 2013-2014, track "Transportation, Vehicular Electronics and Telematics" of the 77th IEEE VTC-spring'13, special session on traffic telematics at IEEE PIMRC'09, IEEE Conference on Wireless Vehicular Communications (WiVeC) 2010. I also served as Demo Chair of WiVeC 2008. Communications (WiVeC) 2008 and 2010 respectively. I am the author of the chapter on "Vehicular Mobility Modeling for VANET" in the book "VANET: Vehicular Applications and Inter-Networking Technologies", (Eds. H. Hartenstein and K. Laberteaux) published by Wiley in 2010.

I have been involved in the EU FP7 project iTETRIS, where I contributed to the architecture and the development of ITS applications and ITS infrastructure deployment strategies. I am now involved in the French Field Operational Test (FOT) project SCORE@F and the smart grid project VELCRI with simulation-related evaluations of cooperative ITS applications based on the iTETRIS Platform.

I am also contributing to standardization activities of the ETSI TC ITS and of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium in Specialist Task Forces (STF) related to the multi-channel operations at 5GHz, and on media-dependent functionalities for Geo-networking. I am Co-chair of the CAR 2 CAR WG Communications.
