Curriculum vitae

I obtained by PhD in Electronic and Information Engineering, in 2002, from the University of Bologna's Department of Electronics, Informatics and Systems (DEIS), with a dissertation on "Reasoning and interaction in logic-based multi-agent systems" under the supervision of Paola Mello and Maurelio Boari. From 2000 to 2003, I spent several periods abroad, mainly at Imperial College London's Department of Computing, as an occasional PhD student and later an academic visitor, working with Francesca Toni and Fariba Sadri. From 2002 until 2005 I obtained several post-doc scholarships. In 2005 I was appointed Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna. In 2012 I obtained the national qualification for Associate Professorship. In 2015 I was appointed Associate Professor in Information Processing Systems at the University of Bologna's Department of Computer Science and Engineering, where I currently do most of my research activity and teach Real Time Systems, since 2012, at the Master Degree in Automation Engineering of the School of Engineering and Architecture.

My recent research focus is in the broad area of Artificial Intelligence, and in particular in argumentation mining, architectures and models for multi-agent systems, reasoning mechanisms, and logic programming.

I maintain research collaborations with several research groups, and I am actively involved in Italian and international research projects. I have co-authored more than 100 refereed articles and edited several international journal special issues and proceedings volumes with renown international publishers. I have organized several events, on multi-agent systems, computational logics, and argumentation, including spring schools and international workshops. I have been a member of several steering and programme committees for prestigious international conferences. I have served as a reviewer for national and international project proposals for the European Commission, and for the Ministries of Research and Education of Luxembourg, Switzerland and Chile. I am in the editorial board of international newsletters and scientific journals. I have been a member of PhD and MSc committees in Italy, UK, Portugal, and Canada. At Alma Mater, I am a member of the Doctorate school in ICT and Law. According to Google Scholar regarding my citations, my H-index is 25.
