Ciao, I am Daniele, an Assistant Professor at EURECOM with the software and system security (S3) group. I am doing research and teaching in applied system security and privacy with an emphasis on wireless communication, such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, embedded systems, such as cars and fitness trackers, mobile systems such as smartphones, and cyber-physical systems such as industrial control systems.

I spent one year and a half as a Postdoc with Mathias Payer’s HexHive group at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). During my postdoc, among others, I’ve participated in the design, implementation and evaluation of DP3T/GAEN, a privacy-preserving contact-tracing technology now used by Android and iOS for proximity tracing.

I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). My PhD thesis is titled “Design, Implementation, and Evaluation of Secure Cyber-Physical and Wireless Systems”. During my PhD I spent six months at the Computer Science Department of the University of Oxford as a visiting researcher advised by Kasper Rasmussen, and ten months as a visiting researcher at the Helmholtz Center for Information Security (CISPA) advised by Nils Ole Tippenhauer.

I hold a BS and MS in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Bologna (UniBO). I spent three months at the University of Massachusetts (UMass Amherst) as a research assistant to prepare my master thesis titled Design and Testing of Random Number Generators (RNG) advised by Wayne Burleson and Riccardo Rovatti.
