He was Management Committee Chair of the European COST Action 295 DYNAMO on Algorithmic Aspects of Dynamic Networks. Since 2024, he is co-chair of the national research group Informatique Fondamentale et ses Mathématiques (GdR IFM). He is currently the head of the Distributed Computing group at IRIF.

His main research interest is parallel and distributed computing, and specifically the design and analysis of distributed algorithms and data structures for networks.

He is member of the Editorial Boards of Distributed Computing (DC), and Theory of Computing Systems (TOCS). He was Program Committee vice-Chair of the 31st IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium, in charge of the Track Algorithms (IPDPS'17). He was Program Committee Chair for the Track C of the 41st Int’l Coll. on Automata, Languages and Programming (ICALP’14), for the 30th ACM Symp. on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC’11), for the 19th Int’l Symp. on Distributed Computing (DISC’05), and for the 13th ACM Symp. on Parallel Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA’01). He co-chaired the PC of the 2nd European Conference on Parallelism (EuroPar'96).

In 2012, he received the Silver Medal from CNRS, and, in 2014, the Prize for Innovation in Distributed Computing.
