Cédric Gueguen


Since September of 2011, I am associate professor at University of Rennes 1 and member of ADOPNET team at IRISA Labs. My main research interests are related to wireless network and particularly to cross layer scheduling algorithms. I am in charge of the Master of network engineering of the University of Rennes 1 since september 2012. Basically, I teach on performance evaluation, 4-5G networks, Internet Protocol, routing...

In 2010, i was researcher (ATER) in the department "Protocols Architecture & Software for Networks" (PASNET) at the University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée (LIGM).

In November 2010, I obtained my Ph.D from the University Pierre et Marie Curie while working in the Networks and Performance Analysis group at the laboratory LIP6. My Ph.D thesis focused on the efficient support of multimedia services in OFDM wireless networks, both in the uplink and in the downlink. New access schemes were studied which further increases the benefits of opportunistic scheduling mainly by extending this cross layer technique to higher layers. The proposed access techniques outperforms existing wireless access schemes and my research mainly demonstrates that choosing between high fairness and high system throughput is no more required. My supervisor was Pr. Serge Fdida, my advisor Ass. Pr. Sébastien Baey.

In 2006, I hold a M.Sc. in Networking from University Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), with a major in performance evaluations.


Research interests

- Opportunistic scheduling. I search to jointly maximize global system throughput, fairness and QoS.
- Green Networking and power saving. I take into account physical layer information in ad hoc network and green networks for minimizing power consumption.
- Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE). I propose new QoE metrics.
- Cooperative networks. I suggest new methodologies in order to motivate nodes to participate.
- Perfomance evaluation. I study the influences of the available frequency granularity on the opportunistic schedulers performances.
