a picture of me Hi! Something about me: I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in computer science at the university of Udine respectively in December 2011 and October 2013, both with full grades. During my master degree I spent 5 months at the university of Southern Denmark (SDU), Odense, where I studied bioinformatics, statistical simulation, cloud computing and heuristic algorithms. During my graduation studies I collaborated with the bioinformatics team of the Istituto di Genomica Applicata (IGA) of Udine with the development of a tool for the analysis of BS-seq data (part of the software suite ERNE).

Since January 2014 I am a PhD student in computer science at the University of Udine under the supervision of prof. Alberto Policriti. My research is focused on algorithms and compressed data structures for pattern matching, with applications to bioinformatics.
