Thierry's research focuses on data privacy and information security and their application to federated systems. He is interested in the design and use of frameworks for privacy risk assessment, the development of provable privacy mechanisms, and the study of utility/privacy trade-off in specific application domains.

Prior to Data61, Thierry was a Senior Researcher with NICTA (National ICT Australia). He worked on protocols and frameworks for large scale testbeds (i.e. ORBIT, GENI, PlanetLab and FIRE). He also worked on tools to enable reproducible experiments on these testbeds. He used and promoted these technologies to teach computing and networking courses (FORGE)

Thierry completed his PhD in cotutelle with the University of New South Wales (UNSW, Australia) and the Institut National Polytechnique of Toulouse (INPT, France). He worked on peer-to-peer mechanisms to discover and utilise Quality-of-Service (QoS) enhanced alternate paths on the Internet. His thesis received the Prix LĂ©opold Escande award from INPT in 2007. Prior to that, Thierry was a Senior Research Engineer at Motorola Australia Research Centre (MARC, now closed), where he worked on Quality of Service technology for mission critical wireless networks.
