I'm currently assistant professor at University of Milan , Computer Science Department, working at the LAser security Lab. I've been Senior Research at Eurecom Graduate School and Research Center at , located in Sophia Antipolis on the French riviera. I am interested in several aspects of Cyber Security. In particular, my main area of research deals with Host Intrusion Detection Systems (HIDS), Memory Errors, Reverse Engineering, malware and forensic analysis. In recent years I’ve mainly studied the application of emulation/virtualization and compiler techniques for malware analysis and detection. In addition I’ve been working on analyzing large-scale security datasets (e.g., Anubis malware collection) to investigate the behavior of current cyber threats.
