News on blockchains


I was interviewed by Joanna Jongwane for a podcast to appear in the online Interstice journal, on the 18th of May. The podcast is accessible here
(talk is in french).

I was interviewed,  on the 28th of March, by the The Parliamentary Office For Scientific and Technological Assessment (OPECST). The OPECST acts as an
intermediary between the political world and the world of research. It must listen to researchers and requests authorized opinions. In order to carry out
its task, the OPECST is assisted by a scientific council reflecting the diversity of scientific and technological disciplines in its composition. The council is ma
de up of 24 leading figures selected on the basis of their expertise. This gave rise to a note.

I was interviewed, on the 15th of March, by the "mission d'information sur l'usage des blockchains", created on the 14th of February, 2018 by the
French National Assembly.
This commission is presided by M. Julien Aubert, deputy of Vaucluse, and Mme Laure de La Raudière, deputy of Eure-et-Loir,
and M. Jean-Michel Mis, deputy of la Loire are co-rappoteur of this commission.

I was interviewed, on the 5th of December 2016, during the radio program "Le labo des savoirs". The radio program is accessible here
(talk in french).

I received my Phd degree in Computer Science from the University Paris-Orsay (Paris-XI) for my work on dependable systems. I spent a post-doctoral year at Cornell University (NY - USA) and worked with Sam Toueg  on unreliable failure detectors. I spent a great year there ! I am a CNRS researcher at IRISA-UMR6074 lab. My current research group is the INRIA/IRISA CIDRE research team. I  investigate dependability and security issues in large scale and dynamic systems. For the last few years, I have been working on data stream algorithms, reputation mechanisms, dependability issues in peer-to-peer systems, and more recently on blockchain technologies.
