Short Bio

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell'Informazione (ISTI) of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Pisa, Italy. I work in the High Performance Computing Laboratory (HPC Lab), headed by Raffaele Perego. My research works focus mostly on web mining, information retrieval, recommendation algorithms, and topic modeling.
I received my Ph.D. in Engineering in Computer Science from Sapienza University of Rome, under the supervision of Prof. Stefano Leonardi. My Ph.D. Thesis was on web usage mining for optimizing information-retrieval systems and for recommending web pages. Part of my research was conducted while I was an intern at the Yahoo Research Lab (Barcelona, Spain) and at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (Saarbrücken, Germany).
Before joining the HPC Lab at ISTI-CNR, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Information Retrieval group of Prof. Fabio Crestani (Università della Svizzera italiana, Lugano, Switzerland) and in the Databases and Information Systems group of Prof. Gerhard Weikum (Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Saarbrücken, Germany).
