I am a Ph.D. student at INRIA's PROSECCO lab, where I focus on applied cryptography and formal verification. I also ride a blue Vespa. Before deciding that I'd like to have an academic career, I was focused on open source software development. Before that, I was a reckless young activist. The most unifying theme of my life has been a great functional, intellectual and aesthetic love for computers. I have lived in Beirut for eighteen years, in Montréal for five and currently reside in Paris.
