Education and Previous Employments
I received a Diploma di Laurea in Scienze dell'Informazione and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bologna, Italy.
Prior to joining Cambridge (in 2008), I was a faculty member in the Dept. of Computer Science, University College of London (UK) and an academic visitor at Washington University in St. Louis, MO (USA).
From October 2005 until September 2010 I held an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship.
My research interests rotate around mobile and sensor systems, mobility modelling, mobile applications, mobile data analysis. We have worked on systems to improve efficiency of mobile and wearable devices, sensing systems, models able to cater for spatio-temporal aspects related to human mobility. Applications have been in the areas of recommendation, behaviour intervention, health, urban design, organization analytics and zoology.
Reading books, pretty much everything...fiction, popular science, in particular.
Food: I love good but not too sophisticated restaurants as well as cooking!
