I graduated in Economics, Networks, and Information at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia in 2004. From the same university I received a MSc in Economics and Managements of Networks and Innovation in 2007 (with a final project supervised by Prof. Roberto Serra). Before moving to Plymouth, UK, for my PhD in Artificial Intelligence I spent few months in Rome, working at the Laboratory of Artificial Life and Autonomous Robotics (LARAL), within the National Research Council’s Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies (ISTC-CNR), under the guidance of Prof. Domenico Parisi. In 2010 I spent a period of time as a visiting student at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems (LIS), directed by Prof. Dario Floreano, at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL). Since 2012 I work as Security Researcher and Advisor with Zanasi & Partners.
