I am a professor in computer science at ENSTA-Bretagne, an engineering school located in Brest, France, where I serve as deputy head of research delegate to cyber security activities. I am also member of LabSticc , a major research laboratory in France.
My interest goes to designing CAD tools for either Reconfigurable Architectures such as FPGAs or non conventional architectures such as NASICs.
I rely on pure object oriented languages such as Smalltalk to capture this domain and produce some quality software.
My other interest is in cyber security and is related to designing evaluation tools dedicated to homomorphic encryption, and taking advantage of hardware to monitor systems.
CAD Tools for FPGA
Madeo, Biniou, Drage, Argen are some innovative environments for FPGAs
Homomorphic Encryption schemes
PAnThers is an environment that offers some evaluation facilities for homomorphic schemes
I rely on Visualworks & Pharo for my developments, and I'm involved in ESUG/IWST
Hardware support for Cyber security
I'm interested in offering advanced monitoring capabilities in hardware as well as dedicated computing resources
From 2015 to 2017, I have served as the head of the STIC (Science, Technology, Information, Communication) department.
Since 2015, I jointly animate the CPER Cyber-SSI project with Frédéric Cuppens
Since 2017 I am the deputy head of reseach at Ensta bretagne, in charge of cyber security
