Welcome to my page!
I am a professor of computer science at the University of Geneva,
also affiliated with the LaBRI, University of Bordeaux, in the Combinatorics and Algorithms department.
Research interests: highly dynamic networks, temporal graph algorithms, computational complexity, distributed computing, and all kind of things interacting in a decentralized way (including security concerns). Besides theory, I enjoy programming and I am the founder of the JBotSim project, a tool for fast prototyping of distributed algorithms in dynamic networks.
