I am now a research engineer / post-doctoral researcher at INRIA Bordeaux within the STORM team, notably under the supervision of Olivier Aumage . I will be working towards integrating error-correcting codes used in post-quantum cryptography in the AFF3CT software.

From june 2021 to septembre 2023, I have been a post-doctoral researcher at University of Rennes, CNRS, IRISA, working within the CAPSULE team under the supervision of Adeline Roux-Langlois.

Previously, I was a Ph.D. student at University of Wollongong, Australia under the supervision of Willy Susilo and Thomas Plantard.

Here is my (maybe not up to date and in french) CV.

Research

I am currently working on lattice-based cryptography with a focus on algebraic lattices and their underlying number theoretical structure. More generally, I am interested by computer algebra, algebraic number theory and their applications to cryptography.

PhD thesis

My Ph.D. thesis can be found here.
Please, feel free to contact me if you have any question, remark or if you spot any error/typo.
