About Me

I’m a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Systems and Software Security group at the Computer Science department of The University of Manchester. Before joining UoM in December 2021, I held post-doc positions at the Aarhus crypto group at Aarhus University (Denmark), and prior at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität (Germany). I received my Ph.D. in computer science at Sapienza University of Rome (Italy) in February 2017, supervised by Giuseppe Ateniese.


My research interests are on the theoretical and practical aspects of cryptography and its applications. Some topics of interest include: subversion-resilient cryptography,  foundations of Blockchain, key-exchange, cryptography from noisy sources, and secure multi-party computation. I’m also interested in computational complexity theory and distributed systems in general.
