Simon Abelard
Ph.D. student in Computer Science

I am a Ph.D. student at Université de Lorraine.

I am a member of the LORIA's project-team CARAMBA, under the supervision of Pierrick Gaudry and Pierre-Jean Spaenlehauer.

Research interests

My research interests lie in the fields of commutative algebra and number theory applied to curve-based cryptography, especially point counting in genus 2 and 3 using Schoof-like algorithms and polynomial systems which naturally arise when so doing. I am also interested in generalizations to non-hyperelliptic curves or to higher genera, along with their complexities.
