I am an assistant professor at the University of Picardie Jules Verne. I am a member of the GOC group. Formerly I was a post-doc in the INRIA LFANT group and a visiting researcher with Microsoft Research in Redmond. I completed my PhD in 2010 at University of Versailles, under the supervision of Antoine Joux.

I work in the area of algorithmic number theory and its applications to cryptography. Lately, I have been working on

- the cryptanalysis of curve and pairing-based schemes : discrete logs, composite order group protocols ...
- algorithms and implementation of primitives in curve-based cryptography

I defended my thesis Algorithmique des couplages et cryptographie on the 14th of May 2010.

- "Pairing-based methods for Jacobians of genus 2 curves". Invited talk at Microsoft Research Number Theory Day, Redmond, USA, July 2012.
- Fast scalar multiplicaton in pairing groups. Invited talk at the "Pairings in cryptography" minisymposium, SIAM AG15 Conference, Daejeon, South Korea, August 2015
