I am a Ph.D student in the Network and Security Department of EURECOM, in Sophia Antipolis, France.
Before moving to France, I received a Bachelor and Master degree in Computer Engineering from Università di Bologna.
I also worked on web security research at the Computer Security Lab of University of California, Santa Barbara from September 2009 to June 2010.
I'm interested in most aspects of computer security, and specialized in web security (vulnerabilities, attacks, web-based malware) and malware detection.
