Since september 2008, Fabrice Valois is full professor in INSA Lyon, where he was associate professor from 2000 to 2008. In january 2000, he received a Ph.D. in computer science about Performance Evaluation of Hierarchical Cellular Networks from University of Versailles. In november 2007, he received the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches from University of Lyon I and INSA Lyon about Self-organisation of wireless multi-hop networks. From september 2018 to august 2019, he was a researcher/temporary assigment (aka délégation in French...) at Inria to work on dense and dynamic wireless networks.

He gives courses mainly about wireless networks (e.g. Wi-Fi, wireless sensor networks), cellular networks (e.g. 2G, 3G, 4G) and networking (e.g. TCP/IP, LAN, mobility management, routing protocols) in the Telecommunications department. He also gave courses on autonomic networking, and on performance evaluation tools applied to networking and telecommunications (e.g. Markov chains, queueing theory, simulation tools).

Co-founder and former director of the CITI research laboratory, Fabrice Valois is now a member of the Agora Inria research team. His research interests are in the area of dynamic, dense and autonomous wireless networks (e.g. networks for IoT, wireless sensor networks, wireless mobile ad hoc networks). More particularly, his research works are focused on networking protocols design and performance evaluation. He is co-author of 3 chapter books, 110+ international publications and he holds 4 international patents.
