My research activity focuses mainly the treatment of uncertainty in machine learning problems, with particular reference to the exploitation of data quality, the design of learning algorithms and their application in the bioinformatics domain. I published more than ninety papers on journals and conference proceedings. I've been member in ten research projects at the national and the international level, among which six were funded by the European Commssion. 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 2018/19 I will primary teach at the University of Milan, on the core courses of Statistics and data analysis (for the BSc in Computer science) and on the elective courses of Big scale analytics and Informatics didactics (for the MSc in Computer science). I will also teach Advanced databases at the Université Nice Sophia-Antipolis. During the academic year 2017/18 I taught on the courses of Statistics and data analysis, Big scale analytics, Informatics didactics and Analysis of multidimensional data. Previously I also taught courses of Simulation, Operating systems, Computer programming 1, Computer programming 3, Software engineering, and of Computer programming lab.

Since about ten years I have been working on popularization and teaching of computer science: I coordinated the activities for prospective students in computer science degrees and for the Sciences division of my university, I wrote two textbooks and several popularization books, 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've also beeninvolved in the implementation of internships for the training of secondary school teachers.
