I graduated from the Politecnico di Torino with Ph.D. in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering in 2001. in 1999 I was with the Computer Science Department of Carnegie Mellon University. In 2002 I visited the Sprint, while 2011 and 2012 I visited Narus Inc, Sunnyvale, and in 2017 I was with Cisco System in San Jose.
My research interests are in internet monitoring and analysis with applications to security and privacy.
I’m the coordinator of the H2020 PIMCity project focusing on technical solution to untangle the online ads&privacy ecosystem. I also am the co-founder of Ermes Cyber Security, a startup providing B2B solutions to protect companies from web-tracking.
I now coordinate the SmartData@PoliTO interdepartmental center in Politecnico, where more than 50 students, professors, and researchers are working on Big Data, Machine Learning and Data Science applications.
