I was born in Bergamo, Italy, in 1994.
I’m a postdoc researcher at Università degli Studi di Bergamo. My research group is Unibg Seclab. We focus on several areas such as system security (Linux, Android), security for data warehouses, access control, data outsourcing and privacy.
Background and competences
I received the PhD in Engineering and Applied Sciences (area: Computer Science) in 2022, with a thesis on Technologies for the secure collection, sanitization, processing and release of data. My advisor was Prof. Stefano Paraboschi.
The PhD is a fundamentally different experience compared to a Master or Bachelor degree. During this journey I learned to work on complex topics, in which I often had no previous knowledge, nor predetermined goals. I also learned how to experiment ideas developing small prototypes, write scientific papers, give presentations, and evaluate the feasibility of new approaches to a problem.
There are 3 software that I use frequently:
Make. Scientific papers are always formatted in
prototypes mostly implemented in
Python. Every time I have the
opportunity, I try to implement new tools in
Go, which is my
favorite programming language.
and used these software/frameworks – Landlock, Seccomp, BPF, Docker, Postgres, Redis, Deno, Bazel, Apache Spark, FRESCO mpc, Z3, FUSE.
From time to time I update a public version of my .emacs.d configuration files.
