I am the coordinator of the H2020 FogGuru project which aims at training the next generation of European Fog computing experts. We design application resource management technologies, middlewares for easing the development of innovative applications and application blueprints, thereby providing tangible benefits to the European citizens.

Cloud and Network Infrastructures
I was the coordinator of the international Master's program on Cloud and Network Infrastructures from 2013 to 2020. This program – delivered entirely in English – prepares future professionals and researchers with an advanced course program on Cloud Computing and related technologies, together with a unique hands-on experience in technological innovation and entrepreneurship. The new coordinator is Cédric Tedeschi.
