About Me

I recently defended my PhD thesis which I did at the University of Lorraine, France, funded by INRIA working in the LORIA's team CARAMBA under the supervision of Pierrick Gaudry and Cécile Pierrot.

Thesis defense: 25th of May 2021, Discrete Logarithm Cryptanalyses: Number Field Sieve and Lattice Tools for Side-Channel Attacks [Slides]

Previously, I was working at the University of Pennsylvania under the supervision of Nadia Heninger.

Currently, I am focusing on the mathematical aspects of applied cryptography. My work lies at the intersection of Mathematics and Cryptography, with particular research interests for discrete logarithm computations in finite fields, lattice-based cryptography and computational number theory. I am interested in both attacks and defenses with a particular interest in using mathematical techniques for obtaining a better understanding of the security properties of commonly used cryptographic primitives in real-world applications.
