I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and, by courtesy, in the Department of Mathematics and in the Department of Computer Sciences. I am also a core member of the Optimization group and of the Data Science Hub at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery.

I am an Associate Editor for Mathematical Programming and Discrete Optimization.

My main research areas are mathematical optimization, discrete mathematics, and mathematics of data science.

**Bio. **In 2009 I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Mathematics of the University of Padova, under the supervision of Giacomo Zambelli. Then, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Robert Weismantel, first in the Institute for Mathematical Optimization of the Otto-von-Guericke University, and then in the Institute for Operations Research of ETH Zürich. In 2013 I joined the Mathematical Programming group of IBM Research as a Goldstine fellow. I moved to UW-Madison in 2014, where I got tenured in 2020.
