Short Bio

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Computer Science at the School of Engineering and Applied Science and member of the Systems Analytics Research Institute, Aston University (UK). My current research interests are in the areas of Structural Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning, Data and Network Science. I received a BSc and a MSc (both summa cum laude) in Computer Science at Ca' Foscari University of Venice, respectively in 2008 and 2010. In 2013 I completed my PhD at Ca' Foscari University of Venice under the supervision of Dr. Andrea Torsello. From March 2012 to September 2012 I visited the Computer Science Department of York University (UK), under the supervision of Prof. Edwin R. Hancock. During this period, I investigated novel ways to apply quantum models, and particularly quantum walks, to graph-based pattern recognition and complex networks analysis. From June 2013 to July 2015 I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Computer Science of the University of Birmingham (UK), in the "Networked Systems and Data Science Lab" led by Dr. Mirco Musolesi. From June to July 2015 I was a Visiting Researcher at the Department of Geography of the University College of London (UK). Since August 2015 I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Computer Science at the School of Engineering and Applied Science of Aston Univerisity (UK). My research interests are in the areas of Structural Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning, Data and Network Science. [Full CV]
