In 2017, I have qualified to become Associate Professor in Computer Science and Computer Engineering (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale for sectors 01/B1 – Informatica and 09/H1 – Sistemi di Elaborazione delle Informazioni). 

 In 2006, I have obtained a PhD with a thesis on commonsense spatial reasoning for pervasive computing applications.   


I work with the INSID&S Lab – INteraction and Semantics for Innovation with Data & Services. I have also established a long-term collaboration with the ADVIS Lab of the University of Illinois at Chicago, directed by Prof. Isabel F. Cruz, where I have been visiting scholar, and with the MIND Lab at DISCo.
