Romain Jacob

I am postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich in the group of Prof. Laurent Vanbever. My current research interests are focused on computer networks, communication protocols, (real-time) scheduling theory, and statistics applied to experimental design.

In 2019, I completed my doctoral studies under the supervision of Prof. Lothar Thiele, also at ETH. My dissertation is entitled "Leveraging Synchronous Transmissions for the Design of Real-time Wireless Cyber-Physical Systems." Before joining ETH, I obtained a Master of Science in Engineering of Complex Systems (2015) and Master for Faculty Training for Higher Education (2013) both from École Normale Supérieure de Cachan (now ENS Paris-Saclay). In 2014, I spent a year in UC Berkeley as visiting scholar under the supervision of Prof. Karl Hedrick.

I am an Open Science enthusiast and try to advocating for it whenever I can. When time allows, I am also involved in science communication projects.
