About me

I am a permanent researcher at CNRS, IRISA in Rennes, France. My main interests lie in the security of embedded devices, especially combined with side-channel information/ attacks, and machine and deep learning algorithms, and malware.

In the end of 2015, I completed my PhD at Telecom ParisTech (COMELEC) under the supervision of Olivier Rioul and Sylvain Guilley. Before, I was working at the Center of Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED) as a researcher. I hold a diploma in mathematics (with a focus on computer science) from the Technische Universität Darmstadt.

I am currently in maternity leave, answering emails may be a bit delayed.
