Dr. Sébastien Barré

Sébastien Barré's picture

I graduated from Université catholique de Louvain in june 2006, as an engineer in computer science, and specialised in computer networking. I then integrated the IP Networking Lab as a phD student, where I also authored two important implementations of new protocols for the Linux kernel: Shim6 and MPTCP.
I obtained my phD in November 2011. After two years in the industry, I joined INL again to start a new company, Tessares, with Gregory Detal, Olivier Bonaventure and Denis Périquet. Since Tessares incorporation in 2015, I have been acting as CTO, then COO of Tessares.
