I am currently a temporary research and teaching assistant at the University of Rennes 1. I teach at the UFR ISTIC and I am a member of DiverSE research team, which is joint to CNRS, Inria Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique, and IRISA.

Since the first October 2017, I have begun my thesis at the University of South Brittany (UBS) in Vannes, France, within the ArchWare research team. My official supervisors are Régis Fleurquin and Nicolas Belloir. Salah Sadou, Vanea Chiprianov and Jamal El Hachem have also participated and contributed in my thesis. I defended my thesis at the 7th January 2021 and obtained a PhD degree in Computer Science.

My research interests include, but are not limited to: Software Engineering, Cyber-Security, Security-by-Design, Model-Driven Engineering, Cryptography, Cloud Security, Systems-of-Systems, IoT, Threat Modeling and Risk Analysis.

During my PhD, I have had a special interest on how to bridge the gap between architects and security experts to integrate the security since the early design phase of software and system development.

Prior to my PhD, I received a Master’s degree of “Content, Network, Telecommunications and Systems Security” (SeCReTS) from the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ).
