Biography

🎓 Academic experience

I took my B.Sc. in Computer Engineering at Roma Tre University in 2009, and a M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Sapienza two years later. After working one year as a software/web developer, I obtained my PhD in Sapienza in 2016, researching mainly in the fields of distributed machine learning and adaptive audio processing.

I am now an assistant professor at Sapienza, where I was previously a post-doctoral fellow. During my studies, I visited Tohoku University in Sendai for a summer school in Robotics, and La Trobe University in Melbourne as a visiting PhD student.
