dr. F. Regazzoni

Circuits and Systems (CAS), Department of Microelectronics

Expertise: Embedded systems


Francesco was a postdoc with Edoardo Charbon in 2012-2013.

He did his master at Politecnico di Milano (Milano, Italy) and his PhD at ALaRI Institute of University of Lugano (Lugano, Switzerland). His research activities are mainly focused on embedded systems. In particular he is interested in security (especially side channel attacks), EDA, operating systems and hardware/software codesign.

During his PhD, he has been collaborating with NEC Labs America (Princeton, NJ, USA), where he has been visiting researcher for fifteen months. Additionally, he has been visiting researcher for six months at COmmunication Security (COSY) of Horst Gortz Institute for IT Security at Ruhr University of Bochum (Bochum, Germany), and visiting researcher for five months at the Laboratoire d'architecture de processeurs at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) under a collaboration grant of European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation. After this he was a Postdoctoral researcher at the Crypto Group of the Université catholique de Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium) and at ALaRI Institute of University of Lugano (Lugano, Switzerland).
