Hi! I am a PhD student at
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Dennis Hofheinz. My main research topics are indistinguishability obfuscation and functional encryption.
I have graduated from the Parisian Master of Research in Computer Science as a student of
École Normale Supérieure de Cachan. My main directions of study were: cryptography, complexity and computability, error-correcting codes, security and privacy.
In my second year of master, I have prepared a thesis on functional encryption under the supervision of Dr. Michel Abdalla, at the
ENS Crypto Team. For my first year of master, I worked on a project on shortest vector problem solvers, carried out under the supervision of Prof. Serge Vaudenay, at the
Before, I have obtained my Bachelor of Computer Science from
University Alexandru Ioan Cuzaof Iasi, where I have worked with Prof. Ferucio Laurentiu Tiplea.
As an undergraduate Erasmus student, I have also followed the research master in cryptography at
Université Joseph-Fourier, most notably the courses on elliptic and hyperelliptic curve cryptography taught by Ms. Vanessa Vitse.
