Davide Balzarotti, is an Assistant Professor at EURECOM, where he is leading (together with Aurélien Francillon) the software and system security group. His research interests include most aspects of system security and in particular the areas of intrusion detection and prevention, binary and malware analysis, reverse engineering, and web security. Davide co-authored more than 60 international publications and he regularly serves as part of the technical program committees of all the top security conferences. He was program chair of RAID 2012 and Eurosec 2014. Before joining EURECOM, Davide spent almost two years in Santa Barbara as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Computer Science at UCSB, working in the Computer Security Lab with professor Giovanni Vigna and professor Richard Kemmerer. In 2007 he participated in the red team involved in testing the capability and security of the voting machines certified for use in the State of Ohio (Project Everest) and in the red team involved in the top-to-bottom review of the electronic voting machines certified for use in California. He received his PhD in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in 2006 with a dissertation on "Testing Network Intrusion Detection Systems".
