I am lecturer and research fellow at University College Dublin and Lero (Ireland) since June 2016. I received my PhD in Information and Communication Technology from Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 2011 and I was summer intern at IBM TJ Watson Research Center (USA) in 2008.

My research interests include requirements engineering and adaptive systems. In particular, my work has focused on using runtime requirements models to engineer complex systems, including service compositions and multi-tenant services, cyber-physical systems, mobile device management software and more generally systems aimed to satisfy their security and privacy requirements and to be forensically ready.

Students and Collaborators

If you are interested in researching the adaptive systems of the future and have a passion for making things concrete and not just on paper, drop me a line. Several thesis topics, as well as smaller projects are available around these themes!

Right now, I have the pleasure to work with a number of smart people around the world:
