Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses on theory of Cryptography. More specifically, I am interested in zero-Knowledge proofs, multi-party computation protocols and Blockchain.


Michele took the Bachelor's Degree cum laude in Computer Science from the University of Salerno in 2012 before completing his Master's Degree cum laude in Computer Science from the University of Salerno in 2014.

In 2018 Michele completed his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Salerno. He was supervised by Prof. Giuseppe Persiano and Prof. Ivan Visconti.

His thesis on "Round and Computational Efficiency of Two-Party Protocols" was rewarded with the  "Best Ph.D. Thesis in Theoretical Computer Science Award 2018", from the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (Italian Chapter).

In 2016 Michele was a Visiting Graduate Researcher at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) under the supervision of Professor Rafail Ostrovsky. He spent the summer of 2017 at Aarhus University hosted by Prof. Ivan Damgaard and Prof. Claudio Orlandi.

From 2018 to 2021 has worked as a research associate at the blockchain technology laboratory at the University of Edinburgh, and in April 2021 he became Chancellor's Fellow.

Michele's research focuses on cryptography, in particular, on theoretical aspects of secure multi-party computation, zero-knowledge proofs, and blockchain protocols.
