I am a research assistant professor in the EECS department at Syracuse University.
I am also a postdoctoral research associate in the Industrial and System Engineering (ISyE) department at the Georgia Institute of Technology, working with Pascal Van Hentenryck. Prior to this, I was a research fellow at the University of Michigan.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at University of Udine, and the Department of Computer Science at New Mexico State University, supervised by Agostino Dovier, at the University of Udine and Enrico Pontelli, at New Mexico State University.

Research interests

Artificial Intelligence; Machine Learning; Data Privacy; Multiagent systems;
I am also broadly interested in the application of Privacy and Machine Learning for energy, transportation, and smart homes domains.
