I'm currently an Assistant Professor at Universita` degli studi di Milano at Computer Science Department, Italy where I'm leading a security Lab, called LaSER (systems and network security lab).

From 2009 to 2013 I've been a Senior Research at Eurecom Graduate School in the S3 lab, located in Sophia Antipolis on the French riviera where I've been part of the iSeclab group. From 2007-2009 I've been Ph.D visiting scholar in Georgia Tech University US, in the GTISC Security Lab led by the Prof. Wenke Lee.

I am interested in several aspects of Cyber Security. In particular, my main area of research deals with Host Intrusion Detection Systems (HIDS), memory errors exploitation, reverse engineering, malware and forensic analysis. In recent years I’ve mainly studied the application of emulation/virtualization and compiler techniques for malware analysis and detection in Android context. In addition I’ve been working on analyzing large-scale security malware datasets to investigate the behavior of current cyber threats.
