I received my doctoral degree (Dr.Sc. Tech) from the University of Oulu (Finland). As the years went by, I reached a good experience in short-range wireless communications and cybersecurity solutions by exploiting the physical layer security. My research focuses on multilevel cybersecurity with a particular interest in critical infrastructure systems.
I am IEEE Senior Member and I have been TPC member in several conferences. I serve as a reviewer IEEE Transaction on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine. I also serve as an Editor reviewer Frontiers in Communcations and Networks - Non-Conventional Communications and Networks section. Furthermore, I hold five patents (wireless communications and positioning).
Today, I am Assistant Professor at IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca, within the SySMA research unit. I work on cybersecurity projects in collaboration with CINI National Laboratory for Cybesecurity.
I currently give lectures on cybersecurity management and on security engineering as a multidisciplinary approach to cybersecurity.
