Biography

Houssam-Eddine Zahaf is an associate professor at IUT of Nantes University, in the real-time systems team of the LS2N laboratory. Earlier, he was a postdoctoral researcher and a lecturer in computer science at Lille University within the Embedded Real-Time Adaptative system Design and Execution (Émeraude) team of the CRIStAL Lab at Lille, France. His main research interests are in real-time systems, operating systems, scheduling algorithms, with a special focus on energy consumption and computing onto heterogeneous/unrelated platforms. Previously, he was a postdoctoral researcher in Hipert Lab, Unimore university in Italy.

He graduated from Oran University, Algeria in 2013 in Embedded Systems, within LAPECI LAB. In November 2016, he received a Ph.D degree in Computer Sciences from Lille university.
