Dr. Gregory Detal

Gregory Detal's picture

I received my M.S. degree in Computer Science Engineering from the Universite catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium, in 2009. I am currently a Ph.D candidate in the IP Networking Lab at the Universite catholique de Louvain.
In October 2009, I was awarded the Alcatel-Lucent Belgium MSc Thesis Award for my work, "On monitoring large-scale Wireless Mesh Networks". My current research interests are in the areas of Multipath TCP, Wi-Fi and data center networking.
