I'm Ibrahim Amadou, currently a Post-doctoral research fellow at INRIA Lille - Nord Europe in the FUN team-project. my post-doctoral fellow's topic is about the design and the validation of Medium Access Control Anti-collision protocols for RFID Systems in ASPIRE RFID. Prior to that, I have been a PhD student, between 2008 and 2012 at INSA-Lyon. During this period, my research agenda focused on the design and evaluation of an energy-efficient routing protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks. I also held as a Teaching Assistant from 2009 to 2011 and Attaché Temporaire d'enseignement et de recherche (ATER) from 2011 to 2012. I also received a Master degree in Networks and Telecommunications from University Paris-Sud 11 in 2008. During my master, I did my internships at INRIA Rocquencourt in the HIPERCOM-team.
