About Me

Since August 2014 I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science of University of Houston, working with Prof. Gopal Pandurangan.

From April 2013 to July 2014 I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science of University of Pittsburgh, working with Prof. Kirk Pruhs. In April 2013 I received my Ph.D. in Information Engineering from University of Padova, advised by Prof. Gianfranco Bilardi. Before that, I received a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. (both summa cum laude) in Computer Engineering from University of Padova.

I am interested in the design and analysis of algorithms.
