New researchers at LINCS

Prof. Petr Kuznetsov (Télécom-Paris) is a new Permanent Member of LINCS. Petr is a Professor in Computer Science at Télécom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris. Petr obtained Bsc and MSc in Mathematics, in 1995 and 1997, resp., from ITMO University and PhD in Computer Science in 2005 from EPFL.
He worked as a postdoc at Max Planck Institute in Software Systems, and a senior research scientist at the Technical University of Berlin.  Since 2013, he holds a professorship at Télécom Paris. His research interests lie at theoretical and practical aspects of distributed systems, with a visible inclination toward theory.  His contributions include work on failure detectors, accountability, characterization of computability of distributed computing models, combinatorial topology in distributed computing, and transactional memory. Recently, he got deeply into the problem space of large-scale replicated systems and application-specific accountability. He was a partner of Marie-Curie ITN TransForm (2010-2015) and Euro-TM COST Action projects on the foundations of transactional memory, the princicpal investigator of the ANR-DFG DISCMAT project on mathematical methods in distributed computing (2015-2019), and currently manages TrustShare Innovation Chair (initiated in 2021) on fixing fundamental drawbacks in the blockchain technology.   
Francesca Bassi (IRT SystemX) is a new Associate Member of LINCS. Francesca was born in Cremona, Italy. She received the Master of Science degree in telecommunications engineering from the University of Bologna (Bologna, Italy) in 2006, and the Ph.D. degree from University Paris-Sud, (Orsay, France) and from the University of Bologna in 2010. In 2007 and 2009, she has been a visiting Ph.D. student at the University of Bologna. From 2006 to 2010, she was with Laboratoire des Signaux et des Systemes (Gif-sur-Yvette, France). Between 2011 and 2012, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (MI, USA). Between 2012 and 2019 she has been an Assistant Professor at ESME-Sudria (Ivry-sur-Seine, France), and an Associate Researcher with the Laboratoire des Signaux et des Systèmes.
Kalpana Singh (IRT SystemX) is a new Associate Member of LINCS. Dr. Kalpana Singh is working as a senior cybersecurity research engineer at IRT SystemX, France since 2017.  She obtained her postdoc at CEA, France in 2017. She did her PhD at Deakin University, Australia in 2015. She has expertise in applied cryptography, blockchain & cybersecurity, data privacy, and post-quantum cryptography.
