About me

I have received my M.Sc. degree in Computer Science in 2009 at the University of Turin, and the PhD in Computer Science in 2013, in the same institution. My PhD studies have been focused on Type Theory and its use in theoretical modeling of biological systems. In 2013 I was a Post-doc at ISI Foundation in Turin (Italy) and at INSERM in Paris (France), in EPIcx lab, working on complex systems and epidemiology, with a particular focus on computational models for analyzing the spread of influenza in realistic populations. Since 2016 I am a Post-doc at the Department of Computer Science in University of Turin, working on the diffusion of information in social networks, with particular concerning on privacy issues.

Research Topics

Complex Systems, Social Networks, Epidemiology, Information Diffusion, Stochastic Simulations.
