Short biography

Davide Frey has been a researcher at Inria Rennes Bretagne-Atlantique since 2010. He received his PhD from Politecnico di Milano in Italy in 2006; he then worked as a post-doctoral researcher both at Washington University in St. Louis (MO), and at Inria Rennes before being recruited as a permanent researcher in 2010. Davide’s research interest focus on distributed systems and algorithms with theoretical and practical contributions. On the practical side, Davide’s contribution span areas such as content dissemination, social networks, blockchain, and decentralized recommendation and machine-learning systems. On the theoretical side, Davide has worked on combinatorial optimization and distributed algorithms, particularly in the context of designing lightweight alternatives to blockchains for a variety of applications. Davide co-supervised 6 PhD students to completion and is currently supervising and co-supervising 3 PhD students on diverse topics: blockchain, privacy, and decentralized identity management. Davide has been active in several national and International projects. At the European level, Davide is currently involved in SOTERIA, an H2020 project, led by AriadNext, for which Davide is Inria’s scientific lead. At the national level, Davide is currently involved in the Byblos ANR project on Beyond-blockchain data structures, and he coordinates the PriCLeSS Cominlabs projects which sees a collaboration of computer scientists and law researchers to address the privacy and legal implication of the storage of personal data on blockchain-like infrastructures.
