M.Sc. in Computer Science Student

EPFL

Hello there! I am Edoardo, a Computer Science M.Sc. student at EPFL, with a strong focus on Machine Learning and Security. I earned a Computer Engineering B.Sc. at PoliTo, after spending my sophomore year as an exchange student at Tongji University (同济大学) in Shanghai, supported by PoliTong scholarship.

I am currently working on a research project about deepfakes counteraction with Prof. Troncoso at EPFL’s SPRING Lab.

I interned at the IT Consulting firm Blue Reply, part of Reply Group, working on RPA and on the development of a chatbot.

I am highly curiosity-driven and my goal is to become an ML Research Scientist, after pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science.

I attended Military Navy College “F. Morosini”, in Venice. There, I lead sophomores as prefect during my final year, and I received military training aboard Italian Navy’s units and at Italian Navy’s Marine Corps.

I am also swimming, sailing, and travel addicted. I like to call myself a beta tester.
