I am a Computer Science Ph.D. Student at ETH Zürich, advised by Florian Tramèr. My interest is in how the current (and future) research about the security and privacy of machine learning systems can be applied to real-world systems. My aim is to understand what the threat models look like in the real-world, and, based on that, understand which attacks are feasible, and what defenses are most effective.
I earned a Computer Science M.Sc. at EPFL, with a strong focus on Machine Learning and Security, and a Computer Engineering B.Sc. at PoliTo. I did my Master thesis about the robustness of Vision Transformers supervised by Princeton University’s Prof. Mittal, and I am one of the co-authors and maintainers of RobustBench, a standardized benchmark for adversarial robustness.
