Experience

2017 - Dagstuhl Seminar 17261 - “Voting: Beyond Simple Majorities and Single-Winner Elections”

2015 - Internship, IBM Research, Yorktown Heights - New York - USA. Visiting research under the supervision of Murray Campbell and Vijay Saraswat. We developed a new method to train a convolutional neural network to predict the working solver to be used in an algorithm portfolio.

2014 - Caen Summer School - “Interdisciplinary Analisis of Voting Rules”

2014 - Eisenhardt Castle in Bad Belzig - “Workshop on Challenges in Algorithmic Social Choice”

2013 - Lipari International Summer School on “Computational Social Science: Big Data”

2013 - Visiting student, NICTA, Sydney - Australia. Visiting research under the supervision of prof. Toby Walsh. We studied and designed a new social choice model about replacement control and implemented some experimental evaluation about it.
