I hold currently the Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Privacy-preserving and Ethical Analysis of Big Data since December 2017. I have joined the Computer Science Department of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in January 2016, after having held a joint Research chair in Security of Information Systems between Université de Rennes 1 and Inria from September 2009 to December 2015. Before that, I was a CNRS postdoctoral researcher in LAAS-CNRS collaborating with Yves Deswarte on the concept of the “privacy-preserving identity card”, after having defending in 2008 my PhD thesis in computer science at the Université de Montréal under the supervision of Gilles Brassard. I have defended in June 2014 my HDR (Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches) titled “Protection of Privacy in the Information Society”. I am a member of the LATECE laboratory as well as the SERENE RISC cybersecurity network.
