Captivating as they may be, Dr. House and Sherlok Holme's one-shot bullseyes truly belong in fiction. Real life will show its teeth and it is your perseverance what oftentimes determines success.
In this talk I will walk you through the design and writing process of a Marie Curie Fellowship evaluated as 98/100: we will see its scientific and technical merits, but also compare it to past blunders in an attempt to learn (to learn) some tricks of the trade.

About the speaker

Carlos E. Budde received his PhD in Computer Science in 2017 from the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (Argentina), specialising in rare event simulation for formal methods. From 2017 to 2021 he worked as postdoc researcher at the Universiteit Twente (The Netherlands), also in collaboration with Dutch Railways, applying simulation and machine learning to big data for risk management. Since 2021 Carlos holds a position as assistant professor at the Università di Trento (Italy), using simulation and probabilistic-based analyses to assess the cybersecurity resilience of systems' models. In 2022 Carlos was awarded a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship: his ProSVED project studies how security vulnerabilities can be used for the estimation of future exploits, combining formal methods with cybersecurity analyses. In 2023 Carlos' project "SMARTITUDE" was granted PRNN funds, to study the formalisation of security models for Blockchain Smart Contracts.
