Welcome to my personal homepage.

About me

I am graduated engineer of Supelec (École Supérieure d'Électricité, Paris), June 2000, where I specialized in Computer Science.

I am also Ph.D. in Computer Science of the Université of Paris VII - Denis Diderot, with David Pointcheval as supervisor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, from November 2003 to November 2006 (with Marc Joye as "correspondant scientifique", i.e., scientific advisor in Gemplus).

For seven years, I have been a security engineer of Gemalto, formerly Gemplus (September 2000 to October 2007). My main activities were
  • development on smart cards, with a focus on RSA and key generation algorithms
  • research on cryptography, especially on public key algorithms
  • weakness analysis (SPA, DPA, FA).

From November 2007 to November 2008, I was a cryptologist within the DCSSI (Central Information Systems Security Division), the State's focal center for Information Systems Security. DCSSI is one of the five main departments of the SGDN (Secretariat-General for National Defence)

Since December 2008, I am working within Apple, in the development team in Paris.
