I am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department, University of Pisa, Italy. I received a Bachelor of Computer Science from the University of Pisa in 2005 (summa cum laude) and a Master Degree from the same university in 2008 (summa cum laude). From May 2008 to December 2008 I was involved in the Italian FIRB Research Project In.Sy.Eme (Integrated System for Emergency). I got my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pisa in 2012 with a thesis on control-theoretic predictive strategies for autonomic parallel computations, supervised by Prof. Marco Vanneschi. From 2012 to 2014 I took part in the joint laboratory between the Department of Computer Science (University of Pisa) and the Italian company List-group S.p.A working in the domain of IT solutions targeting the financial world.
Since October 2012, I have been an Assistant Professor (RTD-A, 3-year position without tenure track) at the Computer Science Department of the University of Pisa, working in the Parallel Programming Models Group held by Prof. Marco Danelutto. I am currently involved in the European research projects (FP7 and H2020) REPARA and RePhrase. Current colleagues in my group are Prof. Marco Danelutto (Full Professor), Massimo Torquati (Assistant Professor), Tiziano De Matteis (PhD student) and Daniele De Sensi (PhD student).
My research interests focus on understanding, designing and evaluating parallel systems and applications at any level, from parallel architectures and their technological evolution, to parallel computing and their enabling frameworks and run-time supports. More concretely, some of my research topics are Parallel Programming, Parallel Architectures, Autonomic Computing and Data Stream Processing.
I am one of the main organizers of the first International Workshop on Autonomic Solutions for Parallel and Distributed Data Stream Processing (Auto-DaSP 2017), held in conjunction with the Euro-Par 2017 conference. I am also one of the co-chairs of the 6th International Workshop on Advancements in Parallel Programming Models and Frameworks for the Multi-/Many-core Era (APPMM 2017), to be held in conjuction with the HPCS 2017 conference.
I started my research activity in 2009. I am author or co-author of 18 journal papers, 25 conference and workshop papers, 3 chapters appearing in handbooks, and 1 book.
