Permanent researcher (Chargé de Recherche) - Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS-CNRS), UPR 8001, Toulouse, France

Welcome to my professional webpage! I am a permanent researcher (Chargé de Recherche) at LAAS-CNRS in the Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance group (TSF). My current research interest is in security and privacy in mobile (social) networks, with a special emphasis on the human and social aspects. My current activities focus mainly on the exploration of the privacy / utility trade-off in location-based and activity-based online social networks.
