Short Bio

Dasara Shullani received the master’s degree in computer engineering from Politecnico di Torino and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering from the University of Florence. She joined the Image Analysis, Processing, and Protection Research Group in 2015 and is now working on creating model-based and data-driven multimedia forensics tools for video content. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Florence. Over the years, she has actively contributed to various research projects funded by prestigious organizations such as the Consortium GARR, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), and the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MUR).

In addition to her research activities, she is involved in teaching as a supervisor to many students obtaining master’s and bachelor’s degrees in computer engineering. Moreover, she has been an adjunct lecturer in the University of Florence’s master’s program in fashion system design since 2022.
