In a few words,
I joined the University of Limoges in 2007 as a Professor at the Computers Science department, where I lead the team SSD (Smart Secure Device) at XLIM. I'm also associate professor of the University of Sherbrooke and I'm in charge of the Security and Cryptology course of the USTH Master (Hanoi). My research interests include the security of small systems like smart cards, but also software engineering. Our researches are based on experimentation.
Prior to that, I was senior researcher at Gemplus Research Labs (1996-2007) leading smart card manufacturer. During this period I spent two years at INRIA (2003-2004) as an engineer at DirDRI (Direction des Relations Industrielles) and senior research associate in the Everest team at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis. I got my Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (HdR) during the INRIA period.
I was researcher at the Advanced Studies Labs of Elecma, Electronic division of the Snecma, now part of the Safran group. I've worked on hard real time techniques for jet engine control (1984-1995).
