I'm an associate professor (PR2) in the networking and security department at EURECOM. Prior to that, I obtained a PhD from INRIA Grenoble and then spent 2 years as a postdoctoral researcher in the System Security Group at ETH Zurich.

My research interests are in security of embedded systems as well as software security and telecom fraud.
