The main topic of my research is the design and the analysis of information delivery systems in the context of challenging environments and disruptive usage patterns. The driving motivation of much of my activities can be stated as follow:
How to handle the mobility in its many incarnations, whether we consider the migration or replication of content between fixed repositories or the movements of the hosting nodes if mobile?
In my research, I address the mobility as a challenge, but also as an enabler.
I defended my HDR thesis entitled 'Information Delivery: Past Struggles & New Directions' on December 20, 2016.
