I am a PhD student under the supervision of Davide Balzarotti at the Software and Systems Security group of EURECOM in Sophia-Antipolis (France).

I obtained a Master of Science and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy), respectively in 2016 and 2013. I have also been a student in the Communication System Security track at EURECOM, in 2015, where I obtained a double-degree with Télécom ParisTech (France) and Politecnico di Torino.

I love to play with binary files and low-level components of operating systems. This led me to cultivate a passion for reverse engineering. Ah, I enjoy playing CTF with NOPS, our S3 academic team.

In my PhD I mainly focus on binary and malware analysis with special attention to Linux malware.
