Bio
Roberto is Global Security Research Head at Nokia Bell Labs. He continuing being curious about technology and, of course, excited about research. His scientific and professional bio can be split into three main branches; some related (but necessarily partial) pieces of information are reported here below: 2013-today - Jan. 2016- today Leading security reasearch conducted over three Research Departments (accounting for 30+ enthusiatic researchers and research engineers), providing vision and strategy. - 2013-Jan. 2016 I Led the Secure Cloud Networking Dept., aiming at solving both the fundamental issues and the big technical challenges related to current and future communication systems---adopting a rigorous research methodology supported by compelling proof of concepts---focusing on the challenges posed by the evident needs for secure and reliable systems, innovative network protocols, and disruptive architectures. As an industry research and innovation manager, I have further refined my managerial and decision making skills---other than continuing achieving research results myself, thanks to the great people I have the chance to be collaborating with. It is worth mentioning that an exciting (and challenging) part of this job is to make the connection between innovation in the above cited research areas and operations. Striving for research excellence and business impact. 2006-2013 Researcher From 2006-2013 I was Faculty in Computer Science (Security) at Università di Roma Tre, as well as of Research Associate at CNR-IIT (National Research Council, Institute for Informatics and Telematics), Information Security Group, Pisa, Italy. Consultant Holding some professional certifications related to Information Systems and Communications security (e.g. CISA, CISSP, CISM, CGEIT, CRISC, ISC2, ISO 27001, Computer Forensics), I had the opportunity to work as a long term consultant with both the United Nations General Secretariat (HQ), the IAEA, and the UNLB---implementation of an ISO 27001 framework. I was also an UN Senior Official (on unpaid leave from University) at WIPO, to help establish an Information Assurance framework. Moreover, I also spent one year at EUROJUST (a European Agency located in The Hague, The Netherlands) as Seconded National Expert to the Data Privacy Service, dealing with privacy and security issues related to the management of information. Quite a frantic period---I loved it. 1995-2006 My professional career in the ICT Security field started in 1995, in the Military, as Officer of the Technical Role, specialized in Telematics, dealing with large scale, classified, ICT projects where security was core. I had the chance to live exciting challenges (at both scientific and personal level) and to share them with incredible people.
