Bio

I am currently an Associate Professor at CentraleSupélec and a member of the Inria CIDRE research team of the IRISA/ laboratory in Rennes Britanny, France. Prior to that, I was a computer security expert at AMOSSYS SAS, a French security consulting company, from 2008 to 2010. I was in charge of the R&D team, and I carried out studies for different clients, including ANSSI (the national cybersecurity agency of France) and DGA (the French government defense procurement and technology agency). I also led and performed security audits, vulnerability assessments, and penetration testings.

I hold a HDR (Accreditation to Supervise Research) and a Ph.D. from University of Rennes 1, a Diplôme d'Ingénieur (M.Eng.) and a Master Recherche (M.Sc.) from Supélec as well as a Diplôme d'Ingénieur from ENSAM. I did my Ph.D. at Supélec in the former SSIR research team on policy-based intrusion detection and Information Flow Control.

My main research interests are computer and network security, particularly Host-based Intrusion Detection Systems. In the last few years, I became increasingly interested in the security of software close to the hardware, such as operating systems or UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) firmware, and I proposed detection approaches specifically targeting these systems. This evolution led me to explore the security of interfaces between software and hardware more generally.
