I am a postdoc fellow of the Visual Information Analysis group of the Kaiserslautern University of Technology.
My reasearch activity is developed in strictly collaboration with Professor Heike Leitte.
I received a Master Degree in Mathematics from the University of Genova (Italy) in July 2012.
In May 2016, I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the same university in 2016 under the supervision of Professor Leila De Floriani and Professor Maria Evelina Rossi. From March to October 2016, I have been a postdoc fellow at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Maryland.
My interests are in various topics in Algebraic Topology, Computational Geometry and Commutative Algebra. Specifically, I focus my studies on Topological Data Analysis. The aim of my research is to develop theoretically-consistent data structures and algorithms for extracting topological information from very large data sets, such as point data and network data, for applications to scientific data analysis.
This has been possible by investigating and exploiting different tools, such as simplicial and persistent homology, discrete Morse theory and multi-resolution models.
