Thibault Liétard

Student in Computer Science and Telecommunications

Hello World !

I am currently following the Master Degree in Computer Science and Telecommunication at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Rennes, a public institution of higher education and research. Previously, I studied for two years at Polytech'Lille, a Graduate School of Engineering, in the department of Software Engineering and Statistics.

I am interested in many different fields of Computer Science, including cryptography, computer algebra, semantic web, computer architecture, statistics... I do not know yet what I want to study afterward, I just know I want to learn a lot of things in many different fields!

Since I have visited the Computer Science Laboratory of Lille, and discussed with its members, I want to become a researcher. I did my first research internship during the month of May and June 2014, in the Cryptography and Computer Security Group, at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium. I developed there a software program to lead side channel attacks, using a statistical study of power consumption of a cryptographic device. Presently, I am working on a project which is part of my training at the ENS Rennes. The goal of this project is to study the ability of the Intel Xeon Phi manycores processor to analyze large data streams.
