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



I'm a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics. I got my Ph.D. in 2017 from Sapienza University of Rome.

My research so far has focused 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 collective behaviors of biological and social systems. More recently, I've been mainly interested in computational neuroscience.

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.
