About me

Hi! I am Mauro Tempesta, PhD student in Computer Science at Università Ca' Foscari (Venice, Italy) under the supervision of Riccardo Focardi.

I am deeply interested in formal methods and computer security, the main topics of my research activity. Sometimes I work as a penetration tester for some IT companies near Venice.

I love solving security challenges and playing CTFs with c00kies@venice. I am also passionate about retrogaming, cycling... and beers :)
