I'm a Researcher in the Trustworthy and Secure Future Internet of Istituto di Informatica e Telematica (Institute of Informatics and Telematics) at the National Research Council of Italy (CNR). My research Focuses on mobile and distributed system security with emphasis on machine learning techniques for Android malware detection, access and usage control for mobile devices, distributed trust in large scale system. Recently I also started working on collaborative, privacy preserving (big) data analysis.

Ph.D. in Computer Science. • Start January 2012 - End June 2015
I got a Ph.D. in Ingegneria dell'Informazione (equivalent to Ph.D. in Computer Science) from the University of Pisa, Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Gianluca Dini and Dr. Fabio Martinelli, with a thesis titled "Enforcing Application Security on Android Mobile Devices" . During my Ph.D., I spent most of the time working in the Trustworthy and Secure Future Internet group, at Istituto di Informatica e Telematica of Italian National Research council (IIT-CNR) under the supervision of Dr. Fabio Martinelli. I also spent three months at Missouri University of Science and Technology (MST) under the supervision of Dr. Sajal K. Das, working on trust in large scale distributed systems. From the University of Pisa I also got Laurea Specialistica (M.Eng) and Laurea Triennale (B.Sc.), respectively in 2011 and 2010.
