I am a Ph.D candidate in Computer Science at the University of Pennsylvania,
advised by Boon Thau Loo and Linh Thi Xuan phan.
My research explores the design of datacenters' Operating Systems and applications.
Datacenter hardware is getting more and more specialized. This is the product of a several factors, notably
recent advances in specialized and programmable hardware, such as FPGA, SmartNICs, NVMe devices and GPUs;
and the end of Moore's Law and Dennard's Scaling.
In this world, traditional processing pipelines are in serious need of renewal: Operating System abstractions as well as application architectures must be re-thought.
My research partially addresses those challenges:
- With the DeDOS project, we designed a framework to deploy applications as a network of very small components that enables fine-grained resource management.
- With Finelame, we created an anomaly detection system able to catch singular outliers in-flight. Finelame is designed for the real-time performance monitoring of datacenter dataplane components.
- With TMC, we are re-thinking how network stacks and high performance application interact.
My on-going work builds-up on those contributions to propose a novel, state-of-the-art kernel-bypass libraryOS.
I completed my Master in CS at Duke University
, and wrote my thesis under Benjamin C. Lee
I also had the luck to count Jeff Chase
and Bruce Maggs
on my thesis committee.
Before that, I have been studying Information Technologies at l'Ecole Supérieure d'Informatique
and been a software engineer for a couple of years in the French startup Hedera Technology
Apart from Computer Science, I enjoy sciences in general, music, dance, travels, history, and much more. I volunteer as a feature editor for the ACM student magazine Crossroads
