Professional Profile

Dr. Riadh DHAOU is an Associate Professor at the Toulouse INP (Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse). He is attached to the Computer Science and Telecommunication department of the ENSEEIHT and is a member, since 2003, of the RMESS (previously IRT) team of the IRIT (Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse) Laboratory (CNRS-UMR 5505).

Research Interests

His research interests include statistical characterization and modelling of mobility, mobile and space communications, modelling and optimization of cross-layer schemes, performance analysis of wireless networks, autonomous multi-hop/cooperative communications systems, capacity and outage analysis of multi-user heterogeneous wireless systems, resource allocation, design and performance evaluation of wireless sensor networks and energy consumption optimization.

Current Research Activities

We focus on three resarch activities :

Optimisation of mobile hybrid satellite-terrestrial networks on different levels: user mobility and the resource management (from access to transport layer), load balancing and rerouting using CDN (from application to network layer), and user mobility and content caching in SDN architectures.

Content dissemination in mobile Disruption Tolerant Networks (WSN, VANET, UAV/M2M networks)

Modelling MAC layer for M2M networks using Low Earth Orbit satellites


 Short bio

Dr. Dhaou was born in Tunis, Tunisia, in 1973.

He received the Engineering degree in Computer Science from the ENSI (University of Tunis II) in 1997, and the Master Degree in Computer Systems from the University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris (Paris VI), in 1998. He was awarded, respectively, a Ph.D. degree in Computer Systems, Telecommunication and Electronic by the University of Paris VI (in November 2002) and the HDR (Habilitation) by the Toulouse INP (in November 2017). Since 2003, he is principal investigator with the cooperative laboratory TeSA, a non-profit association, leading research studies and PhDs in Telecommunications for Space and Aeronautics. Since November 2017, he is the leader of the satellite theme within the IRT team. He has supervised 14 Ph. D. Theses (9 were defended) and 5 master-degree theses. He has published more than 81 papers (including 7 journals and 5 book chapters) and his research activity has been funded by more than 35 research grants in satellite and sensor networks (CNES, Thales-Alenia Space, Airbus D&S). He has been technical leader for 7 research grants in satellite networks and participated in several industrial and academic grants. He participated to several European and National projects: - ESA SATNEX IV project - CAPES-COFECUB Project MMAPS (Management, Mobility, Security, Architecture and Protocols for the Future Internet of Things) - ANR Project CAPTEURS - RNRT Project DILAN - ESPRIT Project BISANTE (Broadband Integrated Satellite Network Traffic Evaluation) - RNRT Project CONSTELLATIONS He also participated to the Network of Excellence NoE Euro-NGI, particularly on the evolution of the IP networks. He was involved in the Technical Program Committee of 7 International Conferences. He was General Chair of PSATS'2013 and was member of one Organization Committee of two other International Conferences. He is, since 2013, part of the Editorial Board of WINET (The springer Wireless Networks journal).
