“I’m interested in multimedia forensics, security technologies and secure media.  Maybe this is the reason why I usually check carefully my climbing harness  before I start to climb a new wall. I’m a computer engineer, a postdoctoral fellow and a wife because life, definitely, it is not a spectator sport!”  (Irene)
