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 (see my Research page), but I am also interested in bioinformatics, computer vision, time-series forecasting and heuristic search. In January 2015 I obtained the National Scientific Qualification (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale) as Associate Professor in Information Engineering (09/H1).
