My name is Sarah Wassermann and I am a 1st-year PhD student at Inria Paris, under the supervision of Dr. Renata Teixeira and Dr. Pedro Casas (AIT Austria). My main research topic is about Internet Quality of Experience. More precisely, my goal will be to deliver algorithms, methods, and software systems to measure Internet QoE and diagnose the root cause of QoE impairments.
Prior to that, I did my MSc. studies at the University of Liège, specializing in computer systems and networks.
Besides my MSc. studies, I conducted research in the field of network measurements under the supervision of Dr. Pedro Casas and Prof. Dr. Benoit Donnet. In particular, I work on Internet path dynamics and performance, machine learning for networking, anycast in cellular networks, and malware detection in smartphones. My master's thesis is entitled Anycast-based DNS in Mobile Networks and I carried out this project under the supervision of Prof. Fabian Bustamante and Prof. Dr. Benoit Donnet. I have been interested in research since my 2nd year at university. This interest was strengthened by four research internships I performed in the last three years, in the specific field of Internet network measurements, and more precisely in active measurements for network performance analysis. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, photography, reading, and video games. I am also interested in 3D-modelling, web and graphic design. This is why I like playing around with Adobe Photoshop and Maxon Cinema 4D.
