I received the PhD degree in the department of Computer Science at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) (Belgium) in 2015. In 2010, I received with honors (grade magna cum laude) my master degree from the same university. During my PhD thesis, I was a teaching assistant and a student doing research as part of a Machine Learning Group (MLG) and the Cryptography and Security Service (QUALSEC). The supervisors of my thesis were Professor Gianluca Bontempi and Professor Olivier Markowitch.
In 2015-2018, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the QualSec Group (in collaboration with the Crypto Group of the Université catholique de Louvain and with Worldline) working on authenticated encryption. Currently, I'm working at Thales Communications Belgium as a Security Engineer.
I'm also the cofounder of the DPA Lab, the laboratory for research into side channel attacks and countermeasures based at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
My research interest includes physical security, side-channel attacks and countermeasures.
