- My PhD thesis On the computational power of simple dynamics has been awarded the Best Italian PhD Thesis in Theoretical Computer Science Award by the Italian Chapter of EATCS.
- During Spring 2018, I'll be a Simons Fellow in The Brain and Computation Program of the Simons Institute.
I'm a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics. My research focuses on the investigation of simple randomized distributed algorithms designed for global coordination tasks. For this purpose I combine techniques from discrete probability, linear algebra and the theory of distributed algorithms. Among its many application domains, I have a strong interest in applying my research to understand the principles which underlie some behaviors of biological systems, including biological neural networks.
Currently, my main hobby is proving Mark Twain wrong on German.
