From July 2021, I am on sabbatical leave from Ecole Polytechnique and working as Principal Researcher and Industry Development Director at Datacom, Huawei France.  

Welcome to Jiazi’s Site ! My full name is Jiazi YI (易甲子 in chinese). I’m currently a Senior Researcher and part-time associate professor in the Network Research Group, Ecole Polytechnique, Paris.

My research interests include Internet of Things, smart grid, intelligent networks, smart city, mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks, routing protocols, cybersecurity QoS, etc.

I received my bachelor degree in computer science from Central South University, China in 2005.

From 2005 to 2008, I joined the double-master degree program between South China University of Technology, China and University of Nantes, France. Then I received the master’s degrees in Computer Science and Electronic System respectively in 2008.

From 2008 to 2010, I did my PhD study in University of Nantes, IVC (Image-Video-Communication) team of L’Institut de Recherche en Communications et Cybernétique de Nantes (IRCCyN), and received the doctoral degree in Nov, 2010. My PhD thesis focuses on the multi-path routing protocol for ad hoc networks, in which MP-OLSR was proposed.  I am also one of the main contributors of LOADng routing protocol, which is the default routing mechanism used in G3-PLC for the future smart grid now being deployed in France and allover the world.
