Oana Teodora IOVA, Ph.D.

I am an Associate Professor (Maître de conférences) with the Telecommunications department at INSA Lyon, and a member of the research team INRIA Agora of the CITI laboratory.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the D3S research group at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) from University of Trento, Italy.

I received my PhD diploma from University of Strasbourg, where I worked under the supervision of Thomas NOEL and Fabrice THEOLEYRE.

I am mostly interested in routing and MAC protocols, low-power long-range technologies, testbeds and experiments for the future Internet of Things.
