I graduated from École Polytechnique in 1991, obtained my PhD thesis from Université Paris Sud in 1995 and my Habilitation thesis from Université Paris 7 in 2010. From 1995 to 1998 I was a researcher at France Telecom R&D, where I developed mathematical models of data transport over the Internet. I joined Microsoft Research Cambridge in 1999, where I worked on distributed algorithms for Peer-to-Peer systems, and in particular on "epidemic" methods for information propagation. In 2006 I joined Technicolor, then known as Thomson. My research there dealt with design of Peer-to-Peer systems for media streaming and analysis of social networks for information dissemination. At Technicolor, I held positions of Director of the Paris Research Lab and Distinguished Scientist, and was elected as a Technicolor Fellow in 2010. In 2012, I joined Inria as Director of the Microsoft Research - Inria Joint Centre. I am the co-author of over 80 scientific papers and 16 patents. I have co-authored the Best Paper Award-winning papers of IEEE INFOCOM'99, ACM SIGMETRICS'05 and ACM CONEXT'07 conferences.
