Diala Naboulsi

PhD student

I am a PhD student at the CITI lab of INSA Lyon, within the UrbaNet INRIA team. I am advised by Dr. Razvan Stanica, in collaboration with Dr. Marco Fiore.

My current research efforts focus on the characterization of customers consumptions in cellular networks for the design of efficient networking applications.

About Me

I was born in Tripoli, Lebanon in 1989.

Between 2007 and 2011, I was an engineering student at the Lebanese University in Tripoli.

From October 2011 until June 2012, I followed a double degree program and obtained a Master degree in Computer Science from INSA Lyon, as well as a Telecommunication Engineering diploma from the Lebanese University.

Since September 2012, I have been a PhD student in the UrbaNet INRIA team at the CITI lab of INSA Lyon.

Within the context of my PhD, I visited the Politecnico di Torino for 5 months in 2013.
