Mariano `emdel` Graziano is currently a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Davide Balzarotti
at the Software and Systems Security group of
Eurecom in Sophia-Antipolis (France).
He earned a Master of Science in Computer and Communication Networks
from Politecnico di Torino (Italy).
Mariano is the "virtual" guy of the group. He spends his days in the office trying to understand all the secrets of Xen, KVM and other hypervisors (bhyve). In parallel he tries to protect the world by developing new automated techniques to analyze malware and to defeat the chaos in the physical memory dumps. When he is stuck in his research, he feeds his brain with CTF challenges with the nops team as well as messing around on IRC.
From July to December 2014 I was an intern at Cisco in the Talos Security Intelligence and Research Group in Columbia, MD.
