Short Biography

I am Associate Professor at “École Centrale de Lyon” and member of the Heterogeneous Systems Design group of the Lyon Institute of Nanotechnology (UMR CNRS 5270) since 2017 and IEEE member since 2018. I receive my engineering degree in Micro-Electronics and Applications from “École Nationale Supérieur des Mines de Saint-Étienne (Campus Gardanne, ISMIN)” in 2013. I receive my Ph.D. from the University of Lyon in 2016, for a work entitled "Salutary hardware design to fight against counterfeiting and theft of integrated circuits", which was supported by the ANR JcJc project SALWARE (number ANR-13-JS03-0003). I have been rewarded for this work by the PhD prize of excellence of the Jean-Monnet University foundation. Today, my research interests focus on the study of the Hardware Security impact of heterogeneous systems that include emerging technologies in the context of the Internet of Things.
