Since 2012, I am a permanent research scientist (Chargée de Recherche) at CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in the Myriads team at IRISA in Rennes, France.

Formerly, I was a postdoctoral researcher working on the PetaFlow project which deals with the problem of distributed simulation and visualization of unsteady flows of peta-scale size in a transcontinental context. I spent my time at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Melbourne.

I did my PhD in the RESO project-team (High Performance Networks, Protocols and Services) at Laboratoire de l'Informatique du Parallélisme (LIP) in Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France), under the supervision of Laurent Lefèvre and Isabelle Guérin Lassous on the following subject:
"An energy-efficient reservation framework for large-scale distributed systems", defended in September 2011.
