Claudio Canella

I am an infosec PhD candidate and University Assistent at Graz University of Technology. I am a member of the coresec group at the Institute of Applied Information Processing and Communications. I obtained my Bachelor and Master's degree in computer science at the University of Innsbruck. During the semester I teach Side-Channel Security and System Level Programming.
