About Me

I completed my Ph.D. in Informatics, Systems and Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Florence (2018).

My research focuses on:

  • Multi-level meta-modeling architectures
  • Relational and Not Only Relational (NoSQL) Databases
  • Performance engineering, anti-patterns and refactoring solutions
  • IoT and Lambda Architectures
