Security and Privacy
Short Academic Bio
I am a Research Scientist in the Security and Privacy group (I hope one day it can be called SPARTA: Security and Privacy Advanced Research TeAm) at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), formerly known as Xerox PARC. (If you'd like to know more about PARC's history, click here.)
My research interests include Security, Privacy, and Applied Cryptography. At PARC, I enjoy the inter-disciplinary environment and have fun connecting Security/Privacy to Genomics, Ethnography, Smart Grid, and Big Data Analytics. I also organize the PARC Privacy Lunch – please consider attending.
From 2007 to 2011, I was at the University of California, Irvine, where I got my PhD in
Surfing and Computer Science, the latter, advised by Gene Tsudik.
My dissertation, titled "Sharing Sensitive Information with Privacy," is available for download here.
I was fortunate to be an intern and work with great folks at Nokia Research
(2010), INRIA Rhone-Alpes (2009), and NEC Research Labs (2008).
I grew up in Italy and received a 5-year "laurea" degree (summa cum laude) in Computer Science, from the University of Salerno.
