Teaching

I’ve had the privileges of teaching both at UC Berkeley and INSA Lyon, and I’m regularly invited to give talk and tutorials at conferences and summer schools.

Teaching

At UC Berkeley

I’ve had the privilege of twice teaching of the EE290Q: “Introduction to Wireless Sensor Networks graduate-level class together with Prof. Kris Pister, during the Spring 2009 and Spring 2010 semesters, during my stay as a Postdoctoral Researcher at UC Berkeley. I taught about half the classes in the latter semester, and prepared and teached the associated labs in both semesters.

The labs were done on the eZ430-RF2500, with support from Texas Instruments. These labs were the foundation of the (now very popular) eZWSN tutorials which you can find on Rice University’s cnx.org [HOT! over 17,850 views!], or on Amazon.com.

At INSA Lyon

During my PhD between 2005 and 2008, I’ve had the chance to teach numerous classes in the Telecommunications Department, for 3rd and 4th year students. These classes include:

  • LAN/MAN/WAN (4th year students)
  • Networking (3rd year students)
  • Algorithms (3rd year students)
  • Operating Systems (3rd year students)
  • Network Modeling and Performance Evaluation (4th year students)

Advising

I’ve had the chance to serve as an adviser for undergraduate student during my PhD at INSA Lyon, and a graduate/undergraduate students during my stay as a Postdoctoral Researcher at UC Berkeley.

If I left you off the list, send me an email! It wasn’t intentional.

  • Moritz Hoffmann worked in the SmartMesh IP development group at Dust Networks/Linear Technology during his 4-month stay as an intern in Fall 2012.
  • Boyang Zhang (2008-2009) on building a 16-channel sniffer for channel hopping IEEE802.15.4 MAC protocols during his fall 2009 stay at the Kris Pister’s group in UC Berkeley.
  • Christopher A. Jian (2008-2009) worked on model rocket-based mote deployment during his summer 2009 stay in Kris Pister’s lab in UC Berkeley. He was co-advised by Ankur Mehta and myself.
  • Clément Burin des Roziers (2007-2008) worked on setting up a large scale wireless sensor network experimentation during a 5 month stay at France Telecom R&D Grenoble for a PFE during his curriculum at the Electrical Engineering department, INSA Lyon.
  • Guilhem Tesseyre (2007-2008) worked on Music nowadays : paradox between diversity and mass-consumption for a non-scientific project at INSA Lyon.
  • Marwen Bayar (2007-2008) worked on the simulation of cross-layer protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks using the GTSNetS platform. He was co-advised by myself and Isabelle Auge-Blum.
  • Michaël Gauthier (2006-2007) worked on wireless sensor network communication protocol implementation on real motes during his 6 month stay at France Telecom R&D Grenoble for a TFE during his curriculum at the Electrical Engineering department, INSA Lyon.
    Michael’s final demonstration was to replicate the 2001 Twenty Nine Palms demo by Prof. Kris Pister at Berkeley. Check out the (very cool) results.
  • Yoann Spadavecchia and Remi Favre (2006-2007) worked on implementing a realistic radio model on the GTSNetS simulator during a 4-month project at the Telecom department, INSA Lyon. They were co-advised by myself and Isabelle Auge-Blum.
  • Balazs Tirpak (2006-2007) worked on implementing self-organization protocols for wireless sensor network on the GTSNetS simulator during a 6 month stay at the CITI Laboratory. He is from the Budapest Tech Polytechnical Institution, Hungary.
  • Wassim Mazraani (2006-2007) worked on implementing the 1-hopMAC protocol on the GTSNetS simulator during a 4-month project at the Telecom department, INSA Lyon.  He was co-advised by myself and Isabelle Auge-Blum.
  • Guillaume Vaquero and Loic Michel (2005-2006) worked on a data gathering protocol for wireless sensor networks during a 4-month project at the Telecom department, INSA Lyon. They were co-advised by Isabelle Auge-Blum and myself.
  • Mickaël Beaupoil and Valerian Meurant (2005-2006) worked on evaluating the energy consumption and real-time characteristics of a wireless sensor network during a 4-month project at the Telecom department, INSA Lyon.
  • Mickaël Beaupoil (2005-2006) worked on blood donors: how to convince people for a non-scientific project at INSA Lyon.
