I'm an Assistant Professor at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna - Pisa (Italy), where I'm part of the Real-Time Systems Laboratory (ReTiS Lab) and the Department of Excellence in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

In July 2020 I received (with honors) the PhD in Emerging Digital Technologies (curriculum Embedded Systems) at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, where I worked at the ReTiS Lab under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Buttazzo and Prof. Alessandro Biondi.

In 2019 I visited the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems - Kaiserslautern (Germany), where I worked with Björn Brandenburg.

In July 2016 I graduated cum laude in the Master of Science in Embedded Computing Systems, jointly offered by University of Pisa and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna.

In September 2013 I achieved the Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science Engineering at the University of Pisa with the score of 110/110.


  • I will chair the 1st workshop on Real-time And intelliGent Edge computing workshop (RAGE 2022), which will take place in conjunction with DAC 2022 on July 10th, 2022 in San Francisco, CA.
    The submission deadline (firm, will not be extended due to the tight DAC 2022 timeline) is March 20, 2022 .
