Riccardo Paccagnella

Hi! I am an assistant professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am a core faculty member in S3D and CyLab and have a courtesy appointment in ECE. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science (2023) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where I was advised by Chris Fletcher.

My research interests are in system and hardware security. Recently, my work has been uncovering and mitigating new classes of hardware vulnerabilities that undermine the prevailing models for building secure software. In the past, I also worked on improving the security of operating system audit frameworks.
