Research

Nowadays we witness a hyper-connected society, this scenario is changing the way we lead our lives on daily basis and as technology advances, new services and sophisticated functionalities are developed for the comfort and welfare of society; thus, one can perceive that everything is based on software, however, the security vulnerabilities, risks and threats are strongly present as well, despite the security community’s best effort. Therefore, I have focused my career path on the Information Security field, specifically I am interested in Computer and Network Security, Software Quality and Software Security Testing and Verification.
