curriculum vitae

Short CV: Post-doc research fellow at the University of Turin (Italy) Department of Computer Science, (Interaction Models Group). A Ph.D. (dottorato di ricerca) in Communication Sciences at the University of Salerno (Ph.D. supervisor: Prof. Marcello Frixione) and a BA (thesis in Logics) and a Master Degree cum laude received by the same university (topics: logics, computer science, cognitive science). I am an author of Nova Lab Il Sole 24 Ore. I have been Visiting Researcher at the University of Haifa (Israel, Dept. of Information Systems, June 2008, host: Prof. Tsvi Kuflik), Carnegie Mellon University (USA, Dept. of Psychology and School of Computer Science, May-July 2016; host: Prof. Christian Lebiere) and Lund University (Sweden, Dept. of Cognitive Science, August-September 2016; host: Prof. Peter Gärdenfors). In 2013 I founded the series of international workshops on "Artificial Intelligence and Cognition" (AIC) and I was general chair of the first 4 editions. Since April 2014 I also received the affiliation to the ICAR-C.N.R. Institute of Palermo (Cognitive Robotics and Social Sensing Group). Since 2015 I am a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Cognitive Robotics. For the academic year 2016-2017 I am a "Professore a contratto" (equivalent of Adjunct Professor) at the University of Turin and at the University of Genoa (Italy) for introductory courses in Web Technologies and Computer Science for Humanities (more info in the teaching section). Starting from November 2016 to December 2019 I am an elected have member of the Steering Comittee of the Italian Cognitive Science Society. For the same period, I have been appointed as Vice-President of the Society.

Research Interests: My research is at the intersection of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence. In particular I am mainly focused on the following topics: - Computational Models of Mind and Cognitive Architectures - Ontologies - Foundational aspects of Knowledge Representation and Conceptual Modelling - Decision Making and Persuasive Technologies.
