I Graduated in Informatical Engeneering in november 2004 at the University of Florence, Italy. My master thesis was focused on authentication protocols for wireless mesh networks. After my graduation I've been working on that topic together with the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications in the laboratory lead by IEEE Fellow Prof. Fantacci. With professor Fantacci I've completed my Ph.D. with title Security Protocols for Distributed Networks in 2010, now I'm having a post-doc at the university of Trento in the Networking Lab of DISI department working with Prof. Lo Cigno. My research Interests are security and privacy in distributed networks, I've been involved in several research and industrial projects, take a look at my resume for more details, publications and patents carrying my name ...
