About me

I am a third year Ph.D. student at Ecole Polytechnique Paris and CNRS, working under the supervision of Oana Goga. I am a member of CEDAR, a joint team between Inria, CNRS, and LIX (Computer Science lab of École Polytechnique) focusing on rich data analytics at cloud scale.

My Ph.D. thesis, titled “Analyzing risks associated with incidental and targeted exposure to information on social media” falls under the broad theme of Computing and Society, and lies at the intersection of User Privacy, Social Media Analysis, and Information Dissemination. My focus is on measuring risks associated with the web (such as the spread of false information) by applying data-driven quantitative methodologies to collect and analyze large scale data from online systems.

Alongside my thesis, I also researched the privacy impact of advertising systems employed by privacy-focused search engines. I employed an automated crawling methodology to identify instances of online tracking when users interact with advertisements.

Prior to my thesis, I graduated as a Computer Science Engineer from the Higher National School of Computer Science (ESI) of Algiers (Algeria) in 2020. I did my final year internship at the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory in Grenoble (France).
