present me

I’m currently working as a Research Associate at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability, and Trust (SnT), University of Luxembourg, in the SEDAN group headed by Dr. Habil. Radu State.

My research activities focus on software dependability and security, especially software verification and assessment. Currently, my research targets include new and innovative technologies such as ARM Trustzone for Cortex-M, Ethereum Smart Contract, and ROS. I am engaged in providing concrete and easy-to-use methodologies and tools that could help industries and open-source communities to provide software that can be trusted. The challenges arise from the nature of modern systems, complex and fragmented, that makes actual acceptance criteria for non-functional requirements incomplete or hard to apply in practice.

I’m the principal investigator of the project “SecuriTy Assessment of tRusTzone-m based Software” (STARTS) funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund under the programme Junion CORE. STARTS project aims to create a methodology for the security assessment of software based on TrustZone-M technology and a novel verification and validation framework to implement this methodology. The project will start in 2020, tutored by prof. Radu Sion, and I’m actively looking for Ph.D. students and post-doc researchers to fill some project positions. Mail me if interested.

I’m involved in the management of the European H2020 project CONCORDIA, a dedicated consortium leading the integration of Europe’s cybersecurity competencies in a network of expertise to build the European secure, resilient, and trusted ecosystem.

past me

I got my PhD in Information Technologies and Electrical Engineering (ITEE), at the University of Naples Federico II (UniNa). My PhD tutors were prof. Domenico Cotroneo, and Dr. Roberto Natella. During my PhD course, I was a visiting scholar at Northeastern University, Boston, USA,for the academic year 2016/2017, tutored by prof. Cristina Nita-Rotaru.

I’m a contributor to the FЯIDA tool project: more precisely, to the low-level code instrumentation library frida-gum.
