Privacy engineer, devops, PhD

I bring technical expertise to Data Protection Agencies and privacy-focused companies on GDPR compliance of websites, Web tracking and anonymization. I perform large Web crawls for compliance and testing using Selenium. I also build and administrate Web applications using Python/Flask, following a DevOps approach.

After a PhD in which I found flaws in the protection of smartphones against Wi-Fi tracking, I did a postdoc on Web tracking at Inria, measuring GDPR and ePrivacy compliance of cookie banners on websites, in collaboration with lawyers. I believe the privacy aspect of IT must be addressed!

Research dissemination is something I do with ease. I regularly write articles for the general press, and I installed a demo Wi-Fi tracking system for an 11-month exhibition at the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie in Paris. I've taught algorithmics and programming during 3 years.

I'm also passionate about dance, and created digital arts & dance shows using a Kinect-based system I developed.
