My research activity focuses mainly the treatment of uncertainty in machine learning problems, with particular reference to the exploitation of data quality and the design of learning algorithms. I published more than seventy papers on journals and conference proceedings. I've been member in seven research projects at the national and the international level, among which two were funded by the European Commssion under the fourth and the fifth programme framework. Previously I've been working on granular computing, bootstrap methods for regression problems, theoretical analysis of computational learning, hybrid systems in learning problems, automatic simplification of symbolic descriptions, study of population dynamics, intelligent systems for pervasive and ubiquitous computing, and emotion classification.

During the academic year 2016/17 I teach on the core courses of Statistics and data analysis (for the BSc in Computer science, the BSc in Computer science for Digital communications, and the BSc in Computer science and Music), and on the elective courses of Big scale analytics, Simulation, and Informatics didactics (for the MSc in Computer science). During the academic year 2015/16 I taught on the courses of Statistics and data analysis, Big data, Big scale analytics, Informatics didactics and Computer programming 3. Previously I also taught courses of Computer programming 1, Software engineering, and of Computer programming lab.

Since some time I have been working on popularization and teaching of computer science: I coordinated the activities for prospective students in computer science degrees, I wrote a book describing to use of software for automatic computation, I am among the founders of the ALADDIN laboratory, I collaborated on a radio broadcast about computer science and I worked on various initiatives for the popularization of the culture behind computer science. I am currently involved in the implementation of internships for the training of secondary school teachers, I am delegated by the Director of the Computer science Department to the activities related to cultural promotion and counseling for prospective students and I organize the activities of the commission for perspective students and vocational orientation of the Science and Technology division of the Milan University. I look after a small blog about science and technology.
