I’m a researcher and software engineer who loves hacking and collaborating at the intersection of several disciplines. I currently work as a research scientist at the University of Lausanne in the Information Security and Privacy Laboratory (ISPLab) of Prof. Kévin Huguenin. My ongoing research project consists in studying the security behavior of Internet users when downloading files from the web and developing tools and standards to protect them.

Before that, I completed a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Benoît Garbinato in the Distributed Object Programming Laboratory (DOPLab). In parallel and prior to that, I worked for several years in startups and as a freelance, successfully completing numerous projects in public transportation and watch-making companies.
