With a flying saucer at

I am a PhD student in LACS under supervision of Prof. Alex Biryukov and Prof. Jean-Sébastien Coron since December 2007. My current research highlights are implementation attacks and countermeasures.

I obtained my diploma (with honours) in information security in 2004 from the Faculty of Information Security, Russian State University for the Humanities, Moscow. My diploma thesis, completed under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Vladimir Anashin, was about pseudorandom number generators. After that, I gained academic experience while teaching and doing research in stream ciphers at RSUH (former homepage). I gained industrial experience as an embedded software engineer at RF Micro Devices' subsidiary in Moscow (currently Rivermark Technology Group), developing soft- and firmware for wireless modules.
