Hi, I'm Christophe Rosenberger.

I am full professor at ENSICAEN (National school of engineering) and I work in the GREYC research laboratory. I am Vice-Director of the GREYC research laboratory and I belong to the "E-payment & Biometrics" research unit in this lab. I am also Vice-President in charge of Digital Services at Normandy University.

My research activities concern biometrics: development of biometric systems (face, fingerprint, keystroke dynamics, touch screen interaction, palm veins...), multi-biometrics (score fusion), the evaluation of biometric systems (performance, security, user perception), the quality of biometric templates (fingerprint) and the protection of biometric data for privacy applications (cancelable biometrics).
