Luca Castiglione
PhD Student
Luca joined the group as PhD student on the HiPEDS CDT in October 2018. He received his MSc in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Napoli Federico II, defending his thesis entitled "Negotiation of traffic junctions over 5G networks". The thesis work has been carried out at Ericsson, Gothenburg (Sweden), within a joint project between University of Napoli Federico II, Chalmers University of Technology and Ericsson. He strongly believes in open source development and he currently is a mentor within the Open Leadership Programme offered by Mozilla. His research interests are on the edge between cybersecurity and control engineering. In particular, his studies aim to investigate resilience of networked systems and industrial plants against cyberattacks.

Jukka Soikkeli
PhD Student
Jukka is currently a PhD student in the RISS group participating in the HiPEDS CDT. His current research interests are in ways to measure and improve the cyber-resilience of partially compromised networks, and in network risk analysis using attack graphs. Jukka holds an MSc in Computing Science from Imperial College London, and degrees in economics from the University of Oxford and the University of St Andrews.
Federico Morini
PhD Student
Federico received his MSc in Engineering in Computer Science from University of Ferrara. He is interested in Protocol Modelling, in particular applied to SCADA Networks. His work is focused on listening to the communication between two hosts and trying to extract information on the message format and state machine of the protocol.
