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:

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's supervision. 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 in France, 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.
