Since August 2014, I am a PhD student in Computer Science at Cornell University. My advisor is Professor Rafael Pass.

I graduated from the the University of Catania in 2014. I was also enrolled in the Scuola Superiore di Catania, an institution that gives talented students from the University of Catania complementary and advanced classes and encourages them to start research projects before graduation.

My master's thesis supervisor and "tutor" on behalf of the Scuola Superiore was Professor Dario Catalano.

In 2013, I spent three months visiting the crypto group group at Aarhus University. In particular, I had the pleasure and honor to work with Prof. Ivan Damgård, Prof. Jesper Buus Nielsen, Prof. Claudio Orlandi.

You can find more information about me in my curriculum vitae.

Research Interests

I am interested in exploring all aspects of asymmetric cryptography and provable security.
