Current position

Since September 2014, I have been a PhD student at the Laboratory for Cryptologic Algorithms (LACAL), at École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, under the supervision of Arjen K. Lenstra and Robert Granger.


I am very interested by the various facets of cryptology and information security, with a particular focus on cryptologic algorithms related to number theory and algebraic geometry — the mathematics behind them as well as their implementation.

Ongoing projects

I am currently working on several problems related to isogeny graphs (of elliptic curves, or Jacobians of higher genus algebraic curves), and the discrete logarithm problem in finite fields.
