I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Milano-Bicocca. My research interests are in the field of algorithms and complexity theory. I am particularly interested in some problems in Computational Biology, such as the Multiple Sequence Alignment, Phylogeny Reconstruction, Probe Selection for DNA arrays and Gene Structure Inference. I am a member of AlgoLab, a research group on Experimental Algorithmics, with a special focus on algorithms for biology.

I have worked on (and I am still loosely interested in) some problems related to the modular decomposition of graphs and hypergraphs, as well as the modeling of data bases by graphs.


I have made available a preprint of my recent papers at ArXiv, and I plan to do so for the foreseeable future.

Almost all my papers are indexed at the wonderful DBLP.

A list of my publications is also at Google Scholar and at BOA (Bicocca Open Archive): the institutional achive of my university.

My ORCID is 0000-0001-5584-3089

My research group can be found at AlgoLab.
