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 security, Internet analysis, and information visualization. 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.
I am very much oriented in solving real problems and in devising innovative solutions that can lead to applications. Within the Preemtptive project I contributed to the design and realisation of USBCheckIn, a hardware that protects computers or embedded devices from BadUSB attacks. 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. 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. A detailed curriculum vitae can be found here. Curriculum Scientifico (in Italian)
