I am associate professor at Department of Engineering and Architecture (DIA), University of Trieste.

I am the head of the Evolutionary Robotics and Artificial Life Lab and the co-head of the Machine Learning LabIf you are a student (here at University of Trieste, or from another institution) and want to work with me, look at the web sites of my labs for finding thesis opportunities and then contact me.

New! I am one of the recipients of the Google Faculty Research Awards 2019 (nominated in February 2020). The funded project is on  "representations and learning algorithms for highly reconfigurable modular soft robots": more info here.

My research interests include Evolutionary Computation and Machine Learning and its application to computer- and engineering-related topics: web and mobile security (automatic detection of web site defacements and phishing, javascript malware analysis, mobile malware detection and analysis), document understanding. I am also interested in natural language processing and information retrieval, computer vision (face detection and recognition). In the last years, I focused on Grammatical Evolution, a form of Genetic Programming. More recently, I started working on Evolutionary Robotics and multi-agent systems, possibly in the context of Artificial Life.
