Bio
I am a Senior Lecturer (~Associate Professor) at University College London (UCL), where I am affiliated with the Computer Science Department and the Information Security group. My research interests include privacy-enhancing technologies, network security, and applied cryptography, and more recently, human aspects of security, measuring web privacy and security, and problems at the intersection of machine learning and security. Before joining UCL, I was a research scientist at Xerox PARC (2011–2013). I received a summa-cum-laude Laurea degree in Computer Science, in 2005, from the University of Salerno (Italy). In 2011, I received a PhD in Networked Systems from University of California, Irvine's School of Information and Computer Science, advised by Gene Tsudik. My dissertation, titled "Sharing Sensitive Information with Privacy," can be found here. During my PhD, I also did research internships at NEC Labs Europe, Heidelberg (2008), INRIA Rhône-Alpes, Grenoble (2009), and Nokia Research Center, Lausanne (2010).
