About Me

I am an assistant professor of computer science at University of Padova.

I received my Ph.D. from University of Padova in 2013, advised by Gianfranco Bilardi. Then, I was a post-doctoral researcher at University of Pittsburgh (2013-2014), working with Kirk Pruhs, at University of Houston (2014-2017), working with Gopal Pandurangan, and at KTH Royal Institute of Technology (2017-2018), working with Danupon Nanongkai.

I am interested in the design and analysis of algorithms.

*Prospective students: I am currently looking for highly motivated students with a strong background in theoretical computer science and mathematics.*
