I am research fellow (for Italians: RTDA) with the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria at Politecnico di Milano and I have been a visiting researcher at Universitat Politècnica de València (Jan-June 2022).

My research areas are Bioinformatics, Databases, and Data Science, where I apply conceptual modeling, data integration, and semantic web technologies to biological and genomic data.

Starting from a Ph.D. thesis on the modeling and integration of data and metadata of human genomic datasets, I have then extended my expertise to the fastly growing field of viral genomics, particularly relevant since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.

I am active in the conceptual modeling and database communities, with several paper presentations and the organization of tutorials and workshops (check out CMLS@ER and WALS@ICWE!).
