Edoardo Debenedetti

M.Sc. in Computer Science Student


Hello there! I am Edoardo, a Computer Science M.Sc. student at EPFL, with a strong focus on Machine Learning and Security. I earned a Computer Engineering B.Sc. at PoliTo, after spending my sophomore year as an exchange student at Tongji University (同济大学) in Shanghai, supported by PoliTong scholarship.

My research interest lies in Trustworthy ML in its different aspects. I am currently working with the team of RobustBench, a standardized benchmark for adversarial robustness under different threat models.

During the last semester, I was a Research Intern at armasuisse CYD Campus, supervised by Dr. Humbert. There, I did research on Machine Unlearning and membership inference attacks against generative models.

During the Spring 2020 semester, I did a research project at Prof. Troncoso SPRING Lab, where I worked on influence functions with the aim of counteracting deepfakes.

Finally, during the Summer 2021, I will be Software Engineering Intern at Bloomberg LP, in London.

I attended Military Navy College “F. Morosini”, in Venice, I am a member of LeadTheFuture, the leading mentoring program for STEM students in Italy, and I have been junior entrepreneur at JEToP.

I am also swimming, sailing, and travel addicted.
