Franck Courbon

I am a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, and a member of the Security group.

I am the PI of “Extending and characterizing the capability of hardware data-extraction techniques” project. Funded by The Leverhulme Trust and Newton Trust, the project first aim is to assess the security of a wide range of our society everyday devices and such from the hardware.

I have previously been a post-doctoral research associate within the Computer Lab Security Group focusing on hardware/software reverse engineering (memory and product level).

I received my PhD. in microelectronics from the Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne (2015) while being part of the Gemalto Evaluation Labs.
