I am a Research Associate at Imperial College, London, in the LSDS group, working with Peter Pietzuch on improving the security of cloud applications by using Intel SGX enclaves, as part of the European research projects Sereca and SecureCloud.

Previously I have been a Teaching and Research Assistant at INSA Lyon, in the DRIM team (LIRIS Laboratory).

I received my Ph.D. in computer science in January 2014 from the University of Grenoble. My advisors were Sonia Ben Mokhtar and Vivien Quéma. I was involved in the ERODS team (LIG Laboratory).

My resume is available here in PDF.


I am interested in the design and analysis of distributed and multicore systems. In particular, I focus on the robustness, security and efficiency of such systems.
I am also interested in programming languages and abstractions for implementing efficient and robust distributed systems.
