Predoctoral Researcher - Quantum-Safe Cryptography
Zurich Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland



I am a PhD. student at IBM Research Zurich and ETH Zurich in Quantum-Safe Cryptography. I am under the supervision of Dr. Bertram Poettering and Prof. Dr. Kenny Paterson.  My main interest lies in the design and implementation of cryptographic solutions (KEM combiners, Signature Schemes combiners, Code-signing schemes) and cryptographic protocols (KEMTLS, e-voting) .


I was a subreviewer for the following conferences: ACISP 2022, ACNS 2022, Eurocrypt 2022, EuroS&P 2022, SRR 2022


Before coming to IBM in 2021, I was doing the Parisian Master of Research in Computer Science at École Normale Supérieure-Paris.
