Houssem Chihoub


I am a research associate at the Grenoble Institue of Technology   (INPG SA). I am currently working in the Hadas team (LIG laboratory) in the context of the ENEDIS industrial chair of excellence on smart grids. Within this chair my intrestes include:

  • Big Data management and systems for smart grids
  • Large scale and high performance data management systems
  • Data lakes and  hybrid or multi datastores
  • Distributed data processing platforms and models
  • Storage systems 
  • data consistency management and models 

I obtained my PhD from ENS Cachan in 2013 for my work on data consistency management in cloud storage systems at the Kerdata team at Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique.
