I have no certainties, at most probabilities. - Renato Caccioppoli


  • For personal reasons I'm not able to accept invitations for long scientific visits for the next few months.
  • Next conferences and workshops that I'll attend are AAMAS 2018 and BDA 2018.


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, in particular biological neural networks.

While a major part of my work is theoretical, I believe every theory should have its experiments and every algorithm should have its implementations.

My current main hobbies are learning bouldering, German and French.
