Damien Magoni
University of Bordeaux
Talence, France

Damien Magoni is a professor of computer science at the University of Bordeaux. From 2002 to 2008, he was a lecturer at the University of Strasbourg. His main research interests are in computer communications and networking, with a focus on Internet architecture, protocols, and applications. Some of his research work has been supported by grants from the European Union, the French National Scientific Research Center, and the Science Foundation Ireland.

His first research contribution was an oriented multicast protocol, which enabled an area to be flooded around a specific destination. He then studied the topology of the Internet at both the router level and the autonomous system level. He wrote the network cartographer software that enabled the mapping of the Internet from dozens of vantage points. For mobile ad hoc networks, he co-designed an algorithm for optimizing the network connectivity versus the energy consumption by varying the transmission range of the devices. For virtual networks, he designed an overlay architecture for the Internet, which is based on fully distributed addressing and greedy routing. For wireless sensor networks, he co-designed an algorithm for improving the latency of emergency messages in road infrastructures and another algorithm for optimizing the data aggregation of continuous information flows.

He has published over 50 research articles. He also has authored several pieces of open-source software for networking research and teaching. His latest contributions are the virtual network device and the network mobilizer, which jointly enable the emulation of mobile networks. He earned a PhD in 2002 and a Habilitation in 2007, both from the University of Strasbourg. He has been a visiting research fellow at various institutions around the world, including the AIST at Tsukuba, the University of Sydney, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and University College Dublin. He has been an IEEE senior member since 2007, and a reviewer for Computing Reviews since 2006.
