I was born on July 26th, 1982 in Cento (Fe).

I took my first Laurea Degree in Computer Science and Engineering (Ingegneria dell'Informazione, Laurea Triennale) at the University of Ferrara on July 22nd, 2004; and my second Laurea Degree in Computer Science and Engineering (Ingegneria Informatica e dell'Automazione, Laurea Specialistica) at the University of Ferrara on October 12th, 2006. My thesis was about Project and Development of an Application supporting web marketing and my final score was 108/110.

I'we been Visiting Researcher at the School of Computer Science and Informatics Systems, Birkbeck College, University of London, London (UK) in 2008.

In February 2010 I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia - ICT School, defending the dissertation thesis:

  • Methodologies for agent systems: fragment-based approaches

In June 2010, I won a grant from the Consorzio Spinner, for the project "Gioco Screening".

Starting from the 30th Decembre 2010 I'm Research Fellow at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia - DISMI.

Now I'm working inside the ASCENS project.

Research Interests

My main research interests are:

- distributed systems

- software agents

- methodologies and infrastructures for agent based systems

- self-organising systems

- self-adaptive systems

- Java programming.

I worked on a national research project:

  • Mensa, Methodologies for the Engineering of complex Software systems: Agent-based approach.

Now I'm working at the international research project:

  • ASCENS, Autonomic Service-Component Ensamble.




I was the Local Organizer of PPPJ 2008

I was session chair at ICAART 2009

ACEC 2013

I'm a commettee member of:

FedCSIS 2012 - 2013
