In everything I do, I am driven by curiosity, passion, and commitment to address challenging and interesting problems, combining creative thinking and rigorous methodology with the ultimate goal of having fun.
Professionally, I am a Computer Scientist specialized in cybersecurity research. I focus on the practical aspects of systems and software cybersecurity, analysing potential threats across various architectural levels to propose effective countermeasures.
I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Pisa, with a dissertation focused on enforcing properties of programs through introspection. My professional experience spans academia (University of Pisa, Imperial College, and Royal Holloway University of London), research centres (IBM Research, and the Italian National Research Center), and industry (Finmatica, and Huawei).
