I am currently a computer science PhD student at Imperial College London, specialising in the realm of security. My research breadth encompasses a wide array of topics such as: (i) vulnerability detection; (ii) optimisation analysis of attack strategies and profitable opportunities; (iii) machine learning-based auditing; and (iv) real-time intrusion detection and prevention. A significant portion of my research focuses on Blockchain and Decentralised Finance (DeFi), given their transparency and the high real asset value (~40B Total Value Locked) of their large-scale datasets (billions of transactions).

My goal is to deepen our understanding in the above-mentioned areas and contribute significantly to their advancement. As I am drawing near the completion of my PhD, I am actively in search of tenure-track opportunities within academia. You can learn more about my academic journey, skills, and experiences on this website. If you are considering a potential research collaboration or have any other inquiries, please feel free to reach out to me. I truly appreciate your interest and visit. Thank you!
