I hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Classical Philology and Italian Studies, University of Bologna, where I teach 'Basic Informatics', 'Computational Thinking and Programming', 'Data Science' and 'Open Science'.

I am an expert in document markup and semantic descriptions of bibliographic entities using OWL ontologies. I am Director of the Research Centre for Open Scholarly Metadata, one of the main developers of the SPAR (Semantic Publishing and Referencing) Ontologies, Co-Director of OpenCitations, and founding member of the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC) and the Initiative for Open Abstract (I4OA).

I am Project Coordinator of the H2020 project "SPICE – Social cohesion, Participation, and Inclusion through Cultural Engagement" and he is Local Unit (UNIBO) Coordinator of the H2020 project "OpenAIRE-Nexus Scholarly Communication Services for EOSC users". I am an Editorial Board member of Data Science, PeerJ Computer Science, and I am a member of the Digital Humanities Advanced Research Centre (/DH.arc), part of the Advisory Board of DBLP and Qeios, and member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI), and of the Associazione per l’Informatica Umanistica e la Cultura Digitale (AIUCD).

Among my research interests are Semantic Web technologies, markup languages for complex documents, design patterns for digital documents and ontology modelling, and automatic processes of analysis and segmentation of documents. My works concern theoretical studies and technical implementation of tools to foster semantic interoperability of Open Science services and infrastructures, the empirical analysis of the nature of scholarly citations, bibliometrics and scientometrics studies, visualisation and browsing interfaces for semantic data, and the development of ontologies to manage, integrate and query bibliographic information.
