Kévin Carrier is an Assistant Professor at CY Cergy Paris Université and a researcher in the Information, Communication and Imaging team of ETIS (UMR8051 – CY Cergy Paris Université, ENSEA, CNRS). He received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Sciences, Telecommunications and Electronic from Sorbonne Université, Paris, France, in 2020. His works have been conducted in collaboration with the Inria of Paris and the French Ministry of Army. Besides, Kévin worked for the French Ministry of Army from 2015 to 2021, first in parallel with his studies and then as a Research and Development Engineer. 

His research interests include post-quantum cryptography, coding theory and information theory. Kévin is the coordinator of the ANR project “DECODE: Generic Decoding for Various Metrics”. 

Research activities

  • Blind reconstruction of error-correcting codes (LDPC codes, soft or hard recognition, weight distributions of codes and dual codes, link with the LPN problem);
  • Code design (Polar codes, LDPC codes, non-binary codes);
  • Post-quantum cryptography (NIST competition, code-based and lattice-based cryptography);
  • Code-based cryptography (generic decoding in Hamming, rank or even Lee metric for small and large distances, LPN problem, statistical decoding);
  • Lattice-based cryptography (CVP, SVP, LWE);
  • Near and far collisions finding problem for various metrics (Hamming, Euclidian sphere, rank, Grassmann, Lee…)
