From 2020 to 2022, I have been a postdoc fellow at the Politecnico di Torino with major interest in computational aspects in persistence module decompositions. I worked in parternship with the SmartData@PoliTO center to develop new methods combining computational topology and machine learning to provide qualitative understanding of data.
From 2019 to 2020, I have been a postdoc fellow at the Université de la Côte d’Azur. My project was in parternship with Amadeus SA and it consisted in developing new clustering algorithms guided by user feedbacks, to optimize clustering quality in the specific domain of flight recommendations by means of Active Learning techniques.
In 2018, I got my PhD in Computer Science at University of Genova, Italy. The project was focused on computational methods and data structures for Topological Data Analysis:
  • optimized algorithms for the retrieval of multiparameter persistent homology invariants
  • multiparameter segmentation of domains via discrete Morse theory
  • Selected Publications
