I am Assistant Professor with a Tenure Track (Ricercatore Tempo Determinato, tipologia B) at Dipartimento di Scienze e Metodi dell'Ingegneria (DISMI), Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia, working in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Currently, the main focus of my research is on argumentation mining and legal informatics (see my Research page), but I am also interested in bioinformatics, computer vision, time-series forecasting and heuristic search. In January 2015 and March 2018 I obtained the National Scientific Qualification (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale) as Associate Professor in Information Engineering (09/H1) and Computer Science (01/B1), respectively.
