I am currently Assistant Professor at Roma Tre University.
I received the the Master's degree
("Laurea") in Software Engineering at the University
of Rome "La Sapienza" in 1997 and the Ph.D. in
Computer Engineering at the same institution in 2001. My research
interests are about algorithms
and software systems for data and cloud security, blockchain, Internet analysis, and
I published more than 50 scientific papers in international conferences and journals.
I had a management role in two international research projects:
(i) "LEONE: from global measurement to local management", (2012-2015), an
FP7 project about monitoring, optimization,
and visualization of the Internet on the basis of data coming from large network of probing devices, and
(ii) "PREEMPTIVE: Preventive Methodology and Tools to Protect Utilities" (2014-2017),
an FP7 project about security of industrial control systems and critical infrastructures.
In 2018 I was among the initiator of the Distributed Ledger Technology Workshop Series. I am very much oriented in solving real problems and in devising innovative solutions that can lead to applications. In 2011 I founded a company (with the commercial name "FileRock") whose aim was to provide cloud services that do not impose to the user to delegate security to the cloud provider, which then led to a commercial product for a major Italian IT provider. From 2009 to 2011 I was scientific coordinator of the Microsoft Innovation Center at Roma Tre University. In 2004, was one of the initiators of the BGPlay project, which still is the most commonly used tool by Internet Service Providers for visually exploring open inter-domain routing data in the Internet. I was also the initiator of the Netkit project for realistic emulation of computer networks for teaching purposes, which is currently adopted by many academic institutions. The evolution of Netkit is now called Kathará. A detailed curriculum vitae can be found here: Curriculum Scientifico (in Italian).
Student projects and thesis (in Italian - tesi e tirocini disponibili)
Gli argomenti di tesi sono relativi a cybersecurity (in ambito cloud, blockchain, fintech e industriale) e network monitoring. I lavori possono prevedere aspetti teorici, progettuali e realizzativi e metodologici, anche in base alle attitudini degli studenti. Poiché tali proposte sono relative ad ambiti di ricerca che richiedono una certa motivazione e quantità di lavoro, la possibilità di attivare un tirocinio triennale dipende da caso a caso.
