I am a first-year PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University advised by Dan Boneh.

Before starting my PhD, I spent one year as a research assistant in the Labaratory for Communications and Applications (LCA1) at EPFL, hosted by Professor Jean-Pierre Hubaux.

My research interests lie in Computer Security, Machine Learning and Cryptography. In recent work I've analyzed attacks on deployed machine learning systems and elaborated new defenses (see for instance our papers on Adversarial Subspaces and Ensemble Adversarial Training). I have also developed formal cryptographic models for trusted hardware (EUROCRYPT'17) and used this primitive and smart contracts to construct fair bug bounties (EuroS&P'16).

I graduated from EPFL in 2015 with a M.Sc. in computer science and was awarded the EPFL Master (1st place), SIA Vaudoise and Elca awards. During my master studies, I was generously supported by an EPFL Excellence Fellowship as well as through a MSc Research Scholarship at LASEC under the supervision of Professor Serge Vaudenay.
Before that, I did my B.Sc. studies in computer science at EPFL and Carnegie Mellon University.
