I got my PhD in Computer Science in 2008 at University of Turin, with a thesis on automatic reasoning techniques applied to autonomous entities interoperability.

In the following years I worked as short term researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Turin, working mostly on Data Mining, Knowledge Representation and analysis of multidimensional data.

After a period of research at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, actually I'm a researcher at RAI research centre of Turin. During my research activity, I collaborated with several companies and institutions, like Arizona State University, École Centrale de Paris, Universit√© Paris 8, Telecom Italia Research and Development Lab, Eurix..

My current research interests include: big data analysis, data mining, multidimensional data analysis, unsupervised machine learning, knowledge representation and integration, social and information networks, collaboration networks and bibliometrics, text mining.
