I received B.S. in electronics and telecommunication systems engineering, and Ph.D. in electronics from National Institute of Applied Sciences in Rennes, France, in 2003 and 2006, respectively. I joined Orange as a research engineer in 2006, and have been the principal delegate for Orange in IEEE 802.11 since 2008. Through these years, I acquired a very solid knowledge of wireless communication systems; I am proficient in both PHY (core skills) and MAC and have extensive knowledge of the landscape and requirements of both Communication and Connectivity networks. I have a proven track record for being effective in diverse roles and in different standardization bodies. In IEEE 802.11 I was mostly involved in 802.11ac and 802.11ah task groups. More recently, I successfully proposed the creation of a study group called High Efficiency WLAN (HEW), and established the direction for this next generation Wi-Fi technology, now under definition in 802.11ax task group. I was designated Chair pro tem of HEW study group.
