I got my PhD in Computer Science in 2008 at University of Turin, with a thesis on automatic reasoning techniques applied to autonomous entities interoperability.

In the following years I worked as short term researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Turin, working mostly on Data Mining, Knowledge Representation and analysis of multidimensional data.

After a period of research at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, actually I'm a researcher at RAI research centre of Turin. During my research activity, I collaborated with several companies and institutions, like Arizona State University, École Centrale de Paris, Universit√© Paris 8, Telecom Italia Research and Development Lab, Eurix..

Actually, I'm an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Turim, where I'm a member of the Social Computing research group.

My current research interests include: social computing, distributed ledger technologies, data mining, multidimensional data analysis, knowledge representation and integration, social and information networks, collaboration networks and bibliometrics, text mining.

I am creator a new workshop series Sideways, International Workshop on Social Media World Sensors, and its organizer in 2015, 2016, 2017, and member of its steering committee.

I participated to the program committees of relevant conferences such as CIKM, and I am reviewer for many conferences and journals.

I have a long experience with EU, national, and regional research projects, where I am scientific responsible for EU Co-city UIA project and responsible for the "geographical data management" for H2020 WeGovNow project. I actively participated to the projects MeSoOnTV, Cooperare, SEeS@W, Librare, DynamicTV, Massive.

The results of my research are transferred to the commercial level via the Sity innovative startup I am co-founder of.
