Laurent Simon

I am a visiting scholar in the KNOX security team at Samsung Research America.

I spent 2012-2017 as a PhD student, and then a post-doc, in the Security Group at Cambridge University's Computer Laboratory, under the supervision of Prof. Ross Anderson.

During my post-doc, I was funded by Thales e-Security and worked on making compilers friendly to cryptographers.

For my PhD, I was funded by Samsung and worked on mobile security and privacy.
