I am an Associate Professor at the New York Institute of technology, where I am affiliated with the Computer Science Department of the College of Engineering and Computing Sciences (CoECS).
My research focuses on applied cryptography, behavioral authentication, privacy-preserving techniques for sharing sensitive information, and security in future Internet architectures, including Named Data Networking (NDN) and Content-Centric Networking (CCN).
I am a co-director of the Lab for behavioral Authentication, Machine learning, and Privacy (LAMP), at the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences of NYIT.
Before joining NYIT, I was a research scientist at University of California, Irvine. I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Genoa, Italy, in 2010. During my Ph.D. I was a visiting scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute under the supervision of Prof. Giuseppe Ateniese.
