I am currently postdoctoral fellow at University of Trento, Centre for Integrative Biology, Italy. I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow with the project "Assembly-based discovery of uncharacterized human microbiome members and their tracking across individuals and time".
I was postdoctoral fellow at Purdue University, School of Civil Engineering, West Lafayette IN (November 2013-September 2014), NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Computational and Information Sciences and Technology Office, Greenbelt MD (September 2012-October 2013) and University of Trento, Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, Italy (December 2011-August 2012).
I received the Ph.D. in Information and Communication Technology (November 2011), Master's degree (March 2008, Grade: 110/110 cum laude) and Bachelor's degree (January 2006, Grade: 110/110 cum laude) both in Telecommunications Engineering at University of Trento, Italy.
My research interests include the development of computational and statistically robust tools for analysis of 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).
