About Me

I am a passionate adherent towards using technology to improve day-to-day living conditions for human societies. In particular I am interested in developing innovative software and security technologies.

Currently a PhD Candidate and Research Assistant at the University of Notre Dame, I have obtained two joint master’s degree in computer science from the Technische Universität Berlin (Germany) and University of Trento (Italy) in 2016; I also have a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Glasgow (United Kingdom) in Electronics and Electrical Engineering, where I graduated in 2014 with first class honors, within the top 2% of my class.

This coming summer (2018) I will be joining as an intern the product security engineering team at Github’s San Francisco office. Previously I have worked as a software engineer at SoundCloud’s Berlin headquarter (2017), developing and strengthening SoundCloud’s backend for user authentication and authorization experience. In between my studies, I have interned at Bosch Power Tools (Suffolk, UK) developing the electronics of robotic lawn movers (2014); at Bosch Connected Device and Solutions GmbH (Baden-Württemberg, Germany) working on software test automation for BCDS’s smart parking new product (2016); at Fraunhofer Institute IPK (Berlin) I worked on applied machine learning in person re-identification (2016) and at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (Rheinland Pfalz, Germany) I have done research in control engineering as a Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) RISE scholar (2013).

I am always looking for new adventures, so far I have lived in eight cities in six countries spreading over three continents. I am also an avid baseball and soccer fan, supporter of the New York Yankees and TSG Hoffenheim.
