I received with honors (grade magna cum laude) my master degree in the department of Computer Science at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) (Belgium) in 2010.
Currently I'm a teaching assistant and a PhD student doing research as part of a Machine Learning Group (MLG) and the Cryptography and Security Service (QUALSEC) in that same university. I have been conducting my PhD studies under the supervision of Professor Gianluca Bontempi and Professor Olivier Markowitch since October 2010.
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 power analysis attack, timing attack and time series classification.
