I am a computer scientist and software engineer. As a scientist, my main research areas are evolutionary computation, computational intelligence, embedded systems, robotics and distributed computing. As an engineer, I have longstanding experience on various projects related to mechatronics, numerical simulations, and industrial optimization.

Currently, I am tenure-track Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI), University of Trento, IT, where I lead the Distributed Intelligence and Optimization Lab (DIOL).
