I received the Laurea degree (summa cum laude, 2005) and the Ph.D. degree (2009), both in Computer Engineering, from the University of Padova and under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Pietracaprina. I'm currently a post-doc in the ERC Project Scalable Similarity Search at the IT University of Copenhagen. From 2009 to 2014, I was post-doc at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova. From 2013 to 2014 I was visiting scholar with and part-time lecturer at the IT University of Copenhagen. From 2007 to 2008, I visited the Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at Austin. I have been in the program committees of: ESA 2015; ACM/IEEE SC 2015 (Workshop program) and 2014-2013 (Poster section); IEEE IPDPS 2015, 2013; MASSIVE 2014; IEEE BigData 2013. I have also been in the organizing committees of: IEEE CLUSTER 2015; IEEE IPDPS 2015-2013; ACM ICS 2012; ESSIR 2009.
