About Me

I'm an assistant professor (RTD-A) at the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering (DEIB) at Politecnico di Milano. I received my PhD in computer science at Politecnico di Milano, where I was advised by Prof. Nicola Gatti. My current research focuses on Artificial Intelligence and algorithmic game theory. In particular, I'm interested in combining machine learning techniques with economic paradigms to build strategic agents able to act in complex multi-agent environments.
