Marino Miculan

(Ph.: G.T.Bernardi)

Associate Professor of Computer Science and Deputy Head at Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics of the University of Udine. (Qualified to Full Professor since March 2018.)

This webpage collects some information about my research, including my publications, the scientific projects and events I am involved in, my teaching activities and academic services.

I know one or two things about process calculi, distributed ledgers, session types, category theory and logic, bigraphs, coalgebras, structured operational semantics, nominal sets, systems biology, type theory, logical frameworks, proof assistants. (In a sense, I am a horizontal researcher.)

Currently, I am mostly interested in security issues of distributed, component-based and smart systems, whose overall behavior is determined by the interaction of many heterogeneous entities. To this end, I am applying formal methods (possibly with a pinch of Machine Learning) to define new models, languages, methodologies and techniques for the formalisation, verification and certification of security properties of these systems.
If this sounds interesting to you too, drop me a note.

I founded and currently lead the Models and Applications of Distributed Systems laboratory, the Udine node of the CINI National CyberSecurity laboratory, and the MadrHacks, the ethical hacking team of the University of Udine.
I have the fortune to work with great people.
