Roberto Di Pietro
KAUST
Saudi Arabia


Brief Bio
Professor Roberto Di Pietro is a Full Professor of Computer Science at the KAUST CEMSE Division. He is affiliated with the KAUST Resilient Computing and Cybersecurity Center (RC3). Dr. Di Pietro started his professional career as a computer scientist in 1995. He served for a few years as a senior military technical officer within the Italian Ministry of Defence (MoD). At the Italian MoD, he managed complex information and communications technology (ICT) projects focusing on resiliency and security. Before joining KAUST, he spent six years as Full Professor in Cybersecurity at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University College of Science and Engineering (HBKU-CSE), Doha, Qatar. He also served as Global Head of Cybersecurity Research for Bell Labs (Alcatel-Lucent/Nokia) for almost four years. In that capacity, he coordinated three security research departments—based in Paris, Munich, and Espoo, Finland—tasked with ensuring that research was in alignment with the strategic business goals and moving research results into innovation. Besides his position at Nokia Bell Labs, Dr. Di Pietro was a professor (with tenure) at the University of Padova, Italy. Prior to the above assignments, he was a professor (with tenure) at the University of Roma Tre, Italy. He founded a startup based on the achieved research results in the domain of access control (successfully exited in 2015). In his academic career, he has secured $9 million USD-plus in funding (either as LPI or PI). Dr. Di Pietro has also held several long-term international research appointments at Vrije University, the Netherlands; George Mason University (Center for Secure Information Systems), U.S.; the University of California Irvine, U.S.; EURECOM, France; and the Barcelona Digital Technology Centre, Spain. ...
