About me
I got my PhD from ENS, where I was a member of the Crypto Team (INRIA Project - Team CASCADE), and I worked on lattice-based cryptography under the supervision of Michel Abdalla and Hoeteck Wee.
I was recruited as a fellow of ECRYPT-NET, a EU-financed project within the "Horizon 2020" programme, thanks to one of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
