About me

Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined? Each life is an encyclopedia, a library, an inventory of objects, a series of styles, and everything can be constantly shuffled and reordered in every way conceivable.” – Italo Calvino, “Multiplicity”, in “Six memos for the next millennium

Ciao! Welcome to my website. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mechanical, Energy, and Management Engineering of the University of Calabria and a visiting researcher at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova, working with Prof. Demetrio Laganà, Prof. Roberto Roberti, and Prof. Roberto Musmanno. Since February 2021 until February 2024, I was one of the two joint coordinators of AIROYoung, the Young Chapter of AIRO, i.e., the Italian Association of Operations Research.

After a scientific diploma in 2010, I first got a Bachelor’s Degree (October 2013) and then a Master’s Degree (March 2016), both in Computer Science and Engineering at University of Brescia, Italy. From May 2016 until October 2017, I worked as an IT manager at Edelweiss Energia S.p.A., an energy-trading company in Sarnico, Italy. I came back to academia in November 2017, when I enrolled in the Ph.D. course in Mathematics jointly organized by University of Trento and University of Verona, Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Romeo Rizzi. In March 2022, I successfully defended my Ph.D. on enumeration problems. Right after, I did a one-year postdoc on temporal networks at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona, where I was also a contract professor in Operations Research.

Since 2018, I have gained experience in teaching several operations research courses at the University of Verona, and I also held some lectures in a scientific high school in Iseo (Brescia, Italy) to implement the ROAR (Ricerca Operativa Applicazioni Reali) project.

Operations research has a manifold nature, and so do I. Beyond research and academia, I have several interests that I’d like to explore and cultivate as much as I can in my spare time. I enjoy a lot disseminating operations research to the public. For instance, since August 2021, I’ve been collaborating with MaddMaths!, the main Italian website for communicating mathematics. In 2017, given my deep love for reading, I founded a book club called “I MiseraLibri”, associated with the public library Biblioteca comunale Fausto Sabeo in Chiari (Brescia, Italy). Since then and until February 2024, I organized and coordinated more than 90 meetings (you can explore our “book map” here), and four provincial and one national gathering of book clubs. I also like writing, practicing yoga, and cooking.
