During my career to date, I have pursued research excellence in three concurrent axes. The first aims at promoting experimental-based research in networking. This approach led us to develop the cOntrol and Management Framework (OMF), a modular testbed management framework, and its companion measurement library (OML). These research instruments allows the researchers to exhaustively describe their experiments and orchestrate their applications with the measurement library. In this context, I have recently developed a general portal in order to automatically store experiment characteristics, and allow the replication and analysis of the results.

The second axis of my research applied to the development of new teaching capacity in accordance to the on-going evolution of both research in networking and the University requirements for students in engineering courses. Indeed, networking has recently been added to numerous diplomas ranging from aeronautical engineering to pure computer science. Thus, a lecturer cannot expect all their students to have good enough programming skills to perform assignments and lab tasks, suggesting that a new teaching approach is required. In order to help the lecturer, I have introduced, with the IREEL tool, a new learning layer for networking and to a certain extent, computer science courses. This layer allows a general abstraction of the network whilst real protocols are used to perform experiments configured by the students. Furthermore, it allows the students to have a better look “under the hood” and to better cope with the steep learning curve involved in the acquisition of the new programming language. Recently, this tool has been used at the UNSW in S2 2010 and was well received by the students for its learning capabilities.

My third research interest is related to P2P computing and service delivery optimisation. In the recent years, the increase of the network capacities has been followed by the increase of end system capacities, such as home gateways. These mini computers, serving as a router/modem, could be use to provide new as well as legacy services directly at the consumer’s premises and thus limit the carbon foot print of services such as VoD or gaming. I am interested in finding new models to describe this kind of managed P2P distribution systems in order to make them even more efficient in terms of energy consumption or SLA fulfilment. In an orthogonal approach, I am also interested in developing new algorithms and architectures to take advantage of the distributed computing capability.
