News

03.02.2012: I've completed my Ph.D. Therefore, this website is no more maintained. My current personal homepage is located here: nbonvin.me.


About

I am a Ph.D. student at EPFL, in the Distributed Information Systems Laboratory (LSIR) under the supervision of prof. Karl Aberer. My main interests are P2P networks, Large-Scale Systems, Cloud Computing and Security.


Projects

Nepomuk

  NEPOMUK brings together researchers, industrial software developers, and representative industrial users, to develop a comprehensive solution for extending the personal desktop into a collaboration environment which supports both the personal information management and the sharing and exchange across social and organizational relations.
  Nepomuk website

OKKAM

  The OKKAM project aims at enabling the Web of Entities, a global virtual space for publishing and managing information and knowledge about entities. The Web of Entities will be the result of enabling the smooth integration of decentralized information sources, made possible by supporting the use (and reuse!) of global unique identifiers for entities: ideally, the same thing will be referred to by the main ID anywhere on the Web or large organizational networks.
  OKKAM website

P-Grid

  P-Grid is a truly decentralized structured P2P system which does not require central coordination or knowledge. It is based purely on randomized algorithms and local interactions and targeted at environments with low online probabilities of peers.
  P-Grid website

Skute

  Skute is a self-managed and geographical highly-available key-value store.
  Skute website

Scarce

  Scarce is a framework to build highly-available and scalable distributed applications on top of cloud infrastructures.
