I am currently a Marie Sklodowska-Curie individual fellow at University of Trento, Centre for Integrative Biology, Italy, working on the project "Assembly-based discovery of uncharacterized human microbiome members and their tracking across individuals and time".
I was postdoctoral fellow at University of Trento, Centre for Integrative Biology, Italy (2014-2016), postdoctoral fellow at Purdue University, School of Civil Engineering, United States (2013-2014), scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Computational and Information Sciences and Technology Office, United States (2012-2013) and postdoctoral fellow at University of Trento, Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, Italy (2011-2012).
I received the Ph.D. in Information and Communication Technology (November 2011), Master's degree in Telecommunications Engineering (March 2008, Grade: 110/110 cum laude) and Bachelor's degree in Telecommunications Engineering (January 2006, Grade: 110/110 cum laude) at University of Trento, Italy.
My research interests include the development of computational, statistical, and machine learning tools for the strain-level analysis of large-scale metagenomic data. I have also worked on developing recognition techniques applied to remote sensing images and biomedical signals.
I received the recognitions of IEEE Senior Member (2017), IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing Best Reviewer (2013), IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters Best Reviewer (2012), and Elsevier Pattern Recognition Letters Best Reviewer (2012).
