I'm an assistant professor in the networking and security department at EURECOM. Together with Davide Balzarotti I am attempting to herd the cats forming the S3 group. 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.
