Research Fellow · Network Science and Machine Learning

University of Catania

I am a Research Fellow at the Department of Electrical Electronics and Computer Engineering (DIEEI) of the University of Catania (Italy), where I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering with a thesis on approaching NP-hard problems on graphs using Geometric Deep Learning.

I work in the NetworkScience Laboratory and my research interests include Network Science and its real-world applications, and also the application of Machine Learning techniques — specifically Geometric Deep Learning — to learn high impact problems, or to solve or reduce the search space of computationally hard ones.

In my free-time I enjoy working on personal projects, practicing sport, playing videogames and photography.
