I am a computer scientist with broad interest in the data-centric & distributed systems domains. My core experience concerns cloud & service-based Big Data management & processing.

I am an Associate Professor (Enseignant-Chercheur) of Computer Science in the CPE engineering school, University of Lyon. I am also a member of the Database group of the LIRIS-CNRS research laboratory.

Before joining the University of Lyon, I worked as research scientist at the Delft University of Technology, the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, the French-Mexican Laboratory of Informatics and Automatic Control and the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory.

I am member of the ACM and a fellow of the Mexican AMEXCOMP.
