Short 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 main research interests include Privacy, Security and Applied Cryptography. Before joining UCL in 2013, I was a research scientist at Xerox PARC (2011–2013). I received a Laurea degree in Computer Science, summa cum laude, from the University of Salerno (Italy), in 2005 and a from the School of Information and Computer Science at University of California, Irvine (UCI), in 2011, advised by Gene Tsudik. My PhD dissertation, titled "Sharing Sensitive Information with Privacy," is available here. During my PhD, I was an intern at NEC Labs Europe, Heidelberg (2008), INRIA Rhône-Alpes, Grenoble (2009), and the late Nokia Research Center, Lausanne (2010).

Working with me

Please send me a short (and personal) email with your CV, a list of 3-4 references, and 2-3 paragraphs summarizing your research interests, whether you have funding, and whether you have already contacted someone in UCL's Information Security Group, if you are interested in:

Teaching

I teach two modules in UCL's MSc in Information Security: Introduction to Cryptography (Term 1) and Computer Security 2 (Term 2). I have also worked with my colleague George Danezis to establish one of the few Privacy courses in the world (Term 2).
