About

I am a CNRS research scientist at IRIF, Université de Paris. I received my PhD from École Normale Supérieure de Paris (ENS) in November 2017, under the supervision of David Pointcheval and Hoeteck Wee. In 2017 – 2019, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), in the team of Dennis Hofheinz.

My main research interests are secure multiparty computation and zero-knowledge proofs (both foundational and practical aspects), as well as the theoretical foundations of cryptography. For an up-to-date list of my publications, you can check my publication page, my dblp profile, or my Google scholar profile. All my publications become available at some point in open access format on the ePrint archive; see the list here. My PhD thesis can be found here.


Students

I have fundings for several master internships, research visits, or PhDs. I am always looking for candidates with a strong academic record to work on projects related to secure computation, zero-knowledge proofs, or foundational aspects of cryptography. Interested? Drop me a mail!

Currently, I am specifically looking for a master student to work on a project related to secure computation and coding theory during the period March 2021 – September 2021 (other periods can be envisioned depending on the student constraints). There is a possibility of continuing this internship as a PhD. You might want to check the internship proposal.
