About Me
Since October 2018 I am a senior post-doctoral researcher at University of Padova.

From August 2017 to August 2018 I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Theoretical Computer Science Group at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, working with Danupon Nanongkai. From August 2014 to July 2017 I was 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.
