Bio. Before founding my most recent start-up, I led Huawei's computer security research in France, focusing on future networks, next generation SIMs, and trusted computing, with recognition from GSMA for my contribution to the mobile industry. I have held positions at national research institutes CNRS and INRIA, advancing electronic voting, network security, and protocol analysis, with recognition from Google and Microsoft for helping to secure their services. I am one of around thirty-five lifelong Toshiba Fellows, my fellowship being awarded for research on cryptography, network security, and protocol analysis, whilst based in Japan. I hold a Master of Engineering degree and a Doctorate of Philosophy, both awarded by the School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham, UK. I also hold an honorary position at the university.
