Since November 2015, I am Associate Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Mathematics and Geosciences of the University of Trieste, Italy. I am also guest professor of modelling and simulation at the department of Computer Science of the University of Saarland in Saarbruecken, Germany, where I worked from June 2014 to May 2015. Check this page for more details. Before that, I was assistant professor (Ricercatore) of Computer Science at the Department of Mathematics and Geosciences of the University of Trieste, Italy. I graduated in Mathematics at the University of Trieste in 2003 and got a PhD in Computer Science form the University of Udine in 2007. I have been an honorary fellow of the School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh, where I spent a sabbatical year in 2012. From 2012 to 2017 I was also associate researcher at ISTI-CNR in Pisa.
