About Me

Hello World! Welcome to my personal website.

I'm currently a PhD Student and Teching Assistant in computer science at Sorbonne University (previously UPMC). I am part of the Delys INRIA team at Laboratoire d'Informatique de Paris 6 (LIP6), under the supervision of Marc Shapiro.

My research is focused on the design of highly available distributed systems and edge computing protocols. In collaboration with the LightKone EU Project.

I'm also a tech enthusiast, knowledgeable about Operating Systems and... a track and field athlete.

project name

The Concordant Platform open source

Build mobile, edge, and collaborative applications that just work, anywhere across the edge-cloud spectrum, seamlessly whether connected or not. Choose your deployment, in the cloud or on-premise; Concordant maintains app consistency and keeps it up and running. Develop applications quickly, with a single code base for multiple devices. Reduce time to market, and focus on your customers' needs.

project name

CRDT Markdown Editor open source

Collaborative text editing application using two eventual consitency backends: revision-based and CRDT-based. This demo shows that with a revision based approach, the user loses updates, either if updates are executed concurrently online, or if multiple users edit the document offline. To have an adequate semantics, the user needs to provide custom, non-trivial, code to merge the updates executed by each user. With the CRDT-based backend, update convergence is available out-of-the-box.

project name

AntidoteDB open source

AntidoteDB is a highly available geo-replicated key-value database. AntidoteDB provides features that help programmers to write correct applications while having the same performance and horizontal scalability as AP/NoSQL databases. Furthermore, AntidoteDB operations are based on the principle of synchronization-free execution by using Conflict-free replicated datatypes (CRDTs).
