I am a Senior Threat Researcher with Trend Micro’s Forward-Looking Threat Research (FTR) team, an elite team of researchers fighting against cyber criminals and scouting the future of the Internet to predict the future evolutions of cybercrime.

My research interests, mainly developed during my MSc and PhD, revolve around various topics under the “cyber security” and “cyber crime” umbrella terms, such as threat analysis and intelligence, malware analysis, mobile security, fraud analysis and detection, web- and social-network security and data visualization.

Before joining Trend Micro, I was an Assistant Professor at Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB), Politecnico di Milano in Italy, where I co-directed the system-security group at the NECST Laboratory.

In my career, I had extensive collaboration with the academic security community (e.g., UCSB, FORTH, NEU, Stony Brook, KU Leven, and RHUL) and the security industry as consultant, and I have given several lectures and talks as an invited speaker at international venues and research schools. I also serve in the review or organizing committees of well-known conferences.
