Before being here, I studied computer engineering at the University of Genova, Italy, where I both took my bachelor degree in 2006 and my M.S. degree in 2009. During my studies in Italy, I have been vice president of the computer science student club 0p3n_l4b, which organizes activities related to free software. My research interests include many aspects of computer security, in particular social network security, spam and botnet analysis and intrusion detection.
