I am Assistant Professor at the Computer Science department of the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI), in L'Aquila, Italy, where I was also PostDoc for one year and a half.

Previously, I was a PostDoc in the DAS Research Unit at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) in Trento, Italy.

I completed my Ph.D. at the Doctoral School in Information and Communication Technology, University of Trento and Fondazione Bruno Kessler. My thesis is about a design for adaptation framework for the modeling and execution of service-based systems via dynamic adaptation, and it has been successfully defended, on May 2018.

I joined the GSSI in 2018 as a postdoctoral researcher. I became an Assistant Professor in 2020.

I received my master's degree in Computer Science from the University of L'Aquila (Italy) in 2012. My master's thesis topic was "Modeling performance antipatterns in the architectural description language « Æmilia »".

I worked as a programmer in private companies before joining the DAS Research Unit at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) in July 2013.

My main research interests include software engineering, software architecture, internet of services, service-oriented architecture, distributed adaptive systems, collective adaptive systems, and IoT-based (adaptive) systems.
