I received the Laurea degree in 2001 and the Ph.D. degree in 2005 from the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova, Italy. My formation included a 1-year visit at the University of California – Berkeley on a student exchange program. In 2005 I won a 1-year research grant (“assegno di ricerca”) at the same department. From 2006 to 2009 I have been working as a Post-Doc at the Automatic Control Laboratory of the ETH Zurich, Switzerland. In November 2009 I was appointed Research Scientist at INRIA Grenoble – Rhône-Alpes, France, where I am currently working in the systems biology project-team IBIS. I teach the Statistics course at CRI since 2013.
Research interests: Modelling, analysis and identification of biological systems; Identification, estimation and control for stochastic and switching systems; Statistical signal processing.
I like playing music (guitar, and a bit of other instruments), profiting from nature (mountain hiking, sea), and doing sports (basketball and volleyball, in particular). I also liked going out with friends when this was possible :)
