Thanks for stopping by my home page! 

I am a software engineer who enjoys doing research at the University of Catania, and being a high school computer science professor in high school since 2001.

I graduated in 1998 and earned a Ph.D. in 2001, both in Computer Engineering. Since then, I've been a research fellow of the University of Catania, serving the computer engineering faculty for 10 years, and lately the computer science department.

I coauthored many original research works, mainly in the fields of software engineering and computer networks. I also teached about 40 full graduated courses (most of them in software engineering), collaborated on about a dozen national and european research projects, and tutored about  a dozen of graduating and PhD students.

I steadily serve in the program committee of four well established international conferences in the field of software engineering, and as reviewer for several IEEE, Wiley and Springer archival journals. 

If you would like to propose a collaboration on a research theme in the field of software engineering, please don't hesitate to contact me!
