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 2017/18 I teach on the core courses of Statistics and data analysis (for the BSc in Computer science), on the elective courses of Big scale analytics and Informatics didactics (for the MSc in Computer science), and on the course of Multidimensional data analysis for the PhD in Computer science. During the academic year 2016/17 I taught on the courses of Statistics and data analysis, Big data, Informatics didactics and Simulation. Previously I also taught courses of 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.

Programming language for the Statistics and data analytics course – 04/10/2017

Tags: Teaching Statistics and data analytics

Computer science students who are not enrolled in the second year will have the choice between R and python as language to be used during the written test. Among those students, who has already followed a R laboratory or have already studied R, it is advisable to stay on R; instead, students not yet haviing studied any language for data analysis are advised to start directly with python. For the students of the other degrees, the R language remains the only option.
