Damien Leroy's picture

I graduated from the UCLouvain (Be) with a Master of Computer Science Engineering in 2006. I received the Alcatel Bell MSc Thesis Award for my Master's thesis on firewalls.

Next, I joined the IP Networking Lab (UCLouvain) where I achieved my PhD in February 2011. My research topics were about locator distribution and renumbering mechanisms in IPv6 networks, WiFi roaming solutions and network security.
