teaching

Some courses I teach or have taught.

I have taught courses on many subjects, and not only in scientific faculties; in fact, Computer Science is intrinsically multidisciplinary, and hence interacting with students and colleagues from different fields is a valuable and inspiring experience.

I have created ab nihilo several courses, such as Distributed Systems, Network Security, Concurrency theory, Languages and Models for Global Computing. Currently I am the coordinator of the Cybersecurity track within the Master Degree in Computer Science.
