I obtained my bachelor degree in Mathematical Engineering and my Master degree in Computer Engineering, both at Politecnico di Milano. I have a Master of Science in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My thesis research has been on Model Checking and Software Formal Verification. In my job I have worked with databases, ETL and data integration processes. I also worked on the implementation of a Java/JS web application for graphs databases visualization. Currently I am a PhD candidate at Politecnico di Milano. I work in the field of data-driven genomic computing. My research interests include bioinformatics data and metadata integration methodologies to support complex biological queries answering. I focus on open data repositories, biomedical vocabularies and ontologies.
