About me

I am a PhD student at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland. I was an EDIC Fellow during my first year. I am interested in post quantum cryptography and digital signatures. I am working in the LASEC lab supervised by Pr. Serge Vaudenay and Pr. Christophe Petit (ULB).


I completed a Bachelor in Mathematics at the University of Geneva (2016-2019), with an exchange semester at the University of Toronto during my 3rd year.

I then obtained a MASt in Pure Mathematics at the University of Cambridge (2019-2020), more commonly known as Part III of the Mathematical Tripos, specializing in Number Theory.

I went on with another Master in Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Geneva (2020-2021), with a focus on cryptography and security.


I contribute to the organization of the Women in Cryptography seminar. Check it out here.

If you are applying to a PhD in Computer Science at EPFL, and would like to get feedback from PhD students on application material, check out our RAMP program here for which I am a mentor.

If you are reading cryptography-related papers and have questions about it, check out AskCrypto, a great initiative for sharing knowledge about cryptography launched by my colleague Abdullah Talayhan.
