I am a PhD in “Technological Innovation Engineering” and in “Mathematics”. I started my career as a research fellow at the University of Palermo (Italy) where, a few years later, I undertook my doctoral studies. As a PhD student, I carried out a first research traineeship within the Erasmus project at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain), where I had the possibility to join a second program of doctorate by developing my doctoral thesis according to an agreement of cotutelle between the two universities. In order to further complement my work of thesis, I successively joined a second Erasmus traineeship at the University of Bath (United Kingdom), a professional traineeship at the company Ingeniousware GmbH (Germany) and a short visit at the IMT Mines Albi-Carmaux (France). In the postdoctoral period, I undertook research experiences at the company Aguas Bixquert SL (Spain), at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil) and at the University of Sheffield (United Kingdom), the last one again under the umbrella of the Erasmus project. I joined the Department of Decision-Making Theory of the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the Czech Academy of Sciences (Czech Republic) in June 2020, where I work as a postdoctoral researcher. On the whole, my main research interests integrate engineering and math, with a particular focus on decision support systems, treatment of uncertainty affecting human evaluations, mathematical modelling, process management and optimisation.
