Short bio

I received the master degree in computer science in 2016, at the University of Padova, Italy, with a thesis about the application of relational data mining. From October 2018, I am a PhD Student at the Brain, Mind and Computer Science (BMCS) School of the University of Padua under the supervision of Prof. Mauro Conti. I am a member of the SPRITZ research group.
My research interests lie primarily on the security of the authentication systems, with a particular focus on those systems based on Machine Learning. So far, I have mainly focused on behavioural biometrics.
