I'm a computer scientist, free software hacker and GNU maintainer, living somewhere in or around Paris, France. Born in another country, I have developed a strong aversion to the very idea of a nation and every flag.
Thirty-something, I don't eat meat, I've quit smoking cigarettes, I got rid of my car and I'm very happy no longer having one.
I'm a scientific rationalist and an Atheist.

You can verify that my GPG-signed messages actually come from me, and get my SSH public keys in case you want to let me access your machines.

You can find my PhD thesis and my academic papers here.
I often give talks, on technical and political matters. You can find most of my presentation slides here.
I've taught at LIPN, Université Paris 13 between 2008 and 2012, and briefly at EPITA in 2014. Starting from September 2015 I'm back at Université Paris 13, teaching full-time at its University Technological Institute.
I provide an archive of the course web pages I prepared when teaching at LIPN here, in the hope that they will be useful to others.
I translated a few non-peer-reviewed articles about security and espionage written by others into the language of the country where I was born.
2015-11-14, 2015-11-18: Several friends contacted me after hearing about the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, concerned about me. I wish to thank them all, and reassure those who didn't contact me. I'm fine.
