Ph.D. Student



BIO

  • I was born in Braintree (UK) in May 1990.
  • Since November 2015, I've been a PhD student in Applied Electronics at Roma Tre University. My main research areas are in Signal Processing, Information Security and Biometrics.
  • I received my Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering (cum laude) at Roma Tre University in February 2013 with the thesis "Biometric Systems Security: Attacks and Countermeasures".
  • After the Bachelor's Degree, I worked for a few months on 3D Ultrasonic Imaging for Basilicata University as part of the European project PRIN 2011/2012.
  • In October 2015, I got my Master's Degree in Information and Communication Technology Engineering (cum laude) at Roma Tre University with the thesis "Biometric Cryptosystems Development". During my studies, I had been involved in many projects, working with various labs of the Engineering Department. Specifically, I worked with the Photonics Lab and the Acousto-Electronics Laboratory (ACULAB).
  • During summer 2016, I worked at Telefonica(I+D), Barcelona, Spain, as a visiting researcher, as part of the European H2020 project ENCASE (ENhancing seCurity and privAcy in the Social wEb: a user-centered approach for the protection of minors).
