About Me

Since September 2021, I am a Postdoc at Aarhus University (Crypto Group), hosted by Claudio Orlandi. From August 2017 to September 2021, I was a Ph.D. student at Stevens Institute of Technology under the supervision of Giuseppe Ateniese. I got my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Computer Science at Sapienza University of Rome.

Research Interests

My research interests are theoretical and applied cryptography with a focus on advanced public-key primitives and their applications. I am also interested in blockchain and privacy-preserving machine learning.
