As enhanced devices at the edge of the network exploit artificial intelligence, even novel computing challenges are raised. In my current research agenda, I investigate all aspects related to distributed intelligent systems for supporting cities and communities, with a strong focus on optimizing decentralized and self-organized infrastructures. My research finds application in several domains, among which smart city, mobility, healthcare, and cultural heritage.
I am an assistant professor in the Future Computing Research Laboratory at the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Hearth Sciences of the University of Messina. I was research fellow in the same university and I earned my Ph.D. in the Department of Engineering at University of Reggio Calabria in May 2020 under the supervision of Massimo Villari.
From 2018 to 2020, I worked as software developer of Humanizing Technologies GmbH in Vienna, one of the most appreciated suppliers of non-industrial robots and robot software worldwide. From 2020, I am an AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner. From 2021, I am authorized to practice as Information Engineer (Italy, Section A).
I have been teacher of several subjects, among which Computer Networks and Algorithms, and teacher’s guide of Bio-Inspired Artificial Intelligence. I am reviewer of respected Springer, IEEE and Elsevier Journals, member of the IFIP Working Group 12.9 about Computational Intelligence, co-chairs of IEEE Workshops (DistInSys, MrICHE, and AI4Health) and co-author of more than 30 manuscripts.
