How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I received my Masters of Science degrees in Telecommunications jointly from the University Paris 6 and Telecom Paris Tech, Paris, France in 2014. I'm pursuing my PhD at IETR under the supervision of Prof. Bernard Uguen. From July to December 2016, I visited Prof. Katsuyuki Haneda and his group at Department of Radio Science and Engineering, Espoo, Finland. My research interests include channel measurements, millimeter-wave channel propagation modeling and simulation.

Conference Paper
A 32 GHz urban microcellular measurement campaign is presented in this paper. A path loss model in line-of-sight (LOS) for the fifth-generation (5G) candidate frequency band 31.8-33.4 GHz is provided, and different key channel metrics such as omni-directional path loss, angular and delay spreads and Rician K-factor are investigated. The investigati...
Conference Paper
This paper presents a versatile spatial scanner Vector Network Analyser (VNA) channel sounder for indoor and outdoor scenarios exploiting a four axis positioner and optical transposition devices which allow a large separation between Tx and Rx antennas. This channel sounder can be used over several frequency bands of interest for the development of...
