Davide Canali

General Information

I obtained my Ph.D from Telecom ParisTech in 2014, after spending 3 years doing research at the Network and Security Department of EURECOM in Sophia Antipolis, France.
I hold a Bachelor and Master degree in Computer Engineering from Università di Bologna, Italy.
I also worked at the Computer Security Lab of University of California, Santa Barbara from September 2009 to June 2010.
My main work and research interests are web and network security. I currently work at Lastline as Network Security Analyst and Researcher.

Note: a newer and more up-to-date academic page (including some datasets from my previous projects) can be found on the EURECOM S3 research group website: s3.eurecom.fr
