About me

Lorenzo's pic

I am an assistant professor of Computer Science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), working on issues concerning network security and traffic analysis. I am broadly interested in solving the challenges that arise when designing network-based security systems that are performant, effective and usable. I am also a proud member of The Cake Lab, WPI CS' systems, networking & security group. For more information, you can check out my research page, and browse my CV and my publications.

Before WPI, I spent 18 months as Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Colorado State University. Previously, I was a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I achieved my Ph.D. working under the supervision of Somesh Jha. I also hold a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Italy.

Interested in working on network security?

I completed hiring students for 2021, but I expect to have additional positions in the near future. If interested, feel free to reach out to me!

Current students:

  • Tongwei Ren (PhD)
  • Harrison Whittaker (PhD)
  • Ryan LaPointe (MS)
