Alessandro Mantovani (a.k.a `elmanto`) is a PhD student in the S3 group of Eurecom, under the supervision of prof. Davide Balzarotti. He got a Msc degree in computer science engineering from University of Genoa (Italy), after spending 4 months at EURECOM as intern to work on his master thesis.

His research interests mainly focus on vulnerability discovery on Linux and Windows malware analysis. Furthermore, elmanto is currently involved in the DARPA CHESS project which aims to the development of the first Human-assisted Cyber Reasoning System (HaCRS).

During free time, elmanto loves playing CTFs, practicing some sports and (sadly not so often) playing guitar.
