Jacob, Romain

Postdoctorant à l'Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Zurich aussi surnommée ETH (en 2023)

I am a 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. You can find out more about my research interests and past activities in my resume and publication page.

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 advocate for it whenever I can. When time allows, I am also involved in science communication projects.


Romain Jacob (ETHZ) : Research replicability in networking research

When designing their performance evaluations, researchers often encounter questions such as: How long should a run be? How many runs to perform? How to account for the variability across multiple runs
