Personal profile


“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” - Marcel Proust

Research profile

Luca is an Associate Professor and head of the Threat Analysis group within the Security Cluster of the Eindhoven University of Technology, in the Netherlands. We investigate attacker operations ([1], [2]), economics ([3], [4]), and how these are ultimately delivered to the (human) user ( [5] , [6]) to improve operational defense capabilities ([7], [8]). Our research draws from several fields, including computer security, economics, risk analysis, and criminology.

I am the Scientific Director of the Eindhoven Security Hub SOC, a facility managed by the TU/e SECurity group and devoted to delivering cutting-edge security monitoring services to its customers. Read more about it here and here.
