- I am a Ph.D. Student at the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) of the The Open University and I am working on early detection of research trends and forecast their future impact (see here).
- My research interests are centered around the Semantic Web, Network Science and Knowledge Discovery technologies required to detect Research Trends.

Since before getting my Master’s, I started working within the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering at Polytechnic of Bari as Research Assistant and Software Engineer.
During this period, I have been involved in several research project
. Although, these project had different aims, my activities were always related to Knowledge Discovery. I, firstly, joined SS-RR
, an Italian project aiming to the detection of harmony levels between one or more people in relation to external stimuli. Afterwards, I was involved in LAMreCOR
for the study of data mining algorithms to improve goods delivery. In the meantime I was also involved in Smart Health 2.0
for providing new solutions for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease in elderly patients.
In December 2014, I moved to the KMi to start my Ph.D.
Originally hailing from Bari (Apulia
, which is arguably considered one of the best regions of Italy), I firstly attended the secondary school in electric and electronics systems, acquiring a wide knowledge for designing and implementing various electrical systems. During this period I also did an internship in a company developing civil and industrial systems.
In 2007, I moved from electronics to computer science, enrolling myself to Computer Systems Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Bari.
Firstly, I took my baccalaureate presenting a dissertation in Antennas and Electromagnetic Compatibility (here the post
, only Italian available) and subsequently I took my Master’s degree presenting a dissertation in Human-Computer Interaction (here the post
, Italian and English available). And now I mostly work in Data Science.
For some yet-to-define reasons I decided to deactivate my Facebook account for a while.
