About Me

I am an Adjunct Professor and a Post-Doc Researcher at Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Bologna. I am a founder of Unibo Laboratory of Information System and Security (ULISSE), a member of the Italian Na­tional Labor­at­ory for Cy­ber­se­cur­ity (Bo­logna node), and the member of the Microservice Community (Microservice Security Group)

I obtained my Ph.D. at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering “Guglielmo Marconi” (DEI), at University of Bologna in 2020, where i was a member of the Network Laboratory (NetLab).

I also took part in two academic exchanges, working as a visiting researcher at University of Queensland at the School of Information Technology & Electrical Engineering, and at Polytech of Nice Sophia were i obtained a Second Level Master on Ubiquitous Networking and Security.

My research focuses on aspects of computer security related to innovative software architectures. In particular, my actual research activity aims to study, design and implement innovative solutions that allow to improve the safety and operational robustness of connected production industrial network and devices for cyber-security contexts.

Some of my main works includes a study of the Insider Threat problem on Microservice Architecture for Smart Mobility Application. The development of a framework for enforce Security Network Policies over Industrial Network, and an original Software Defined Network Architecture that combined Constraint Programming and Data Plane Programmability features.
