Short Bio profile

Master's Degree in Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Parma (110 cum laude), July 2011.
– PhD in Information Technologies at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Parma, March 2015.
– Research grant holder at the University of Parma from February 2015 to December 2016.
– Fixed-term researcher at the University of Parma from 31 December 2016 to date.

He carried out supplementary teaching activities for various courses in different Degree Courses at the University of Parma from the 2010/2011 to the 2014/2015 academic year. Since the 2016/2017 academic year, he has been a professor in charge of the course "Fundamentals of Programming A" (Degree Course in Mathematics) and of the course "Fundamentals of Computer Science" (Degree Course in Communication and Contemporary Media for Creative Industries) at the University of the Parma Studies.
She was co-supervisor of a PhD thesis and co-supervisor of some three-year degree theses.
He is co-owner of an Italian patent and of three international patent proposals.
