Fabio `pagabuc` Pagani is currently a PhD student in the Software and Systems Security group of Eurecom, under the supervision of Davide Balzarotti.

He obtained a Master degree in Computer Science from Universita' degli Studi di Milano (Italy). During his MSc, he spent 6 months in Uppsala (Sweden) as an Erasmus student and 4 months in EURECOM as an intern working on his master thesis.

Fabio has a 360 degree approach to security, and in fact his first publications are all very different (one on System Management Mode, one on Spam, and one ongoing on CFI).

During his PhD he will (hopefully!) tackle some of the existing and unresolved problem of binary analysis.
