Research Activity

I am currently associate professor at Jussieu's University (UPMC) in the project-team POLSYS which is common between UPMC and INRIA. My research area is at the intersection of cryptography and symbolic computation. I am mainly interested by evaluating the security of cryptographic primitives by means of algebraic methods. The idea is to model a cryptographic primitive as a system of algebraic equations. This general approach is called algebraic cryptanalysis. Once this modeling is done, the problem is then to solve an algebraic system. Gröbner bases is a classical technic to do so. The team has applied this approach to evaluate the hardness of various problems underlying the security of post-quantum schemes (that is, multivariate schemes, code-based schemes as well as Lattice-based schemes).
