I completed my Ph.D. in Informatics, Systems and Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Florence (2015).
My research focuses on:
Multi-level meta-modeling architectures applied to e-Health
Continuous-time model-based approaches for Activity Recognition in Ambient Assisted Living
Classification, prediction, and scheduling of human activities in stochastic and partially observable systems
Automated compliance evaluation of care pathways
I presently teach Software Engineering at the School of Engineering of the University of Florence (in the Bachelor Degree in Management Engineering).
