About Me

PhD student in Digital Security

Hi all! I'm Cristian Daniele and I'm a PhD student at Radboud University.

My background covers various aspects of Cyber security. Although, during my Bachelor's and Master's degree, I deepened my knowledge about the formal analysis of protocols and specific cryptographic primitives used to insert delay within a process (my Master's thesis focuses on the C implementation of the VDF -- Verifiable Delay Functions).

Now, I'm focusing on fuzzing for stateful systems and formal analysis of protocols. Feel free to drop me a few lines if you are interested in these fields!

PhD in Digital Security

Radboud University | 2022 - ongoing :)

I started my PhD at Radboud University in November 2021 within the INTERSECT project.

Master's degree in Computer Science

University of Catania | 2018 - 2020

I obtained a Master's degree in Computer Science with honours with a thesis named: "A comparison between verifiable delay function implementations". Take a look at the manuscript and the code!

Degree in Computer Science

University of Catania | 2015 - 2018

I obtained a Degree in Computer Science with honours with a thesis named: "An Unity tool to edit and analyse polynomial meshes".
