Hello and welcome to my web site :)

I am Senior Lecturer in Computer Science within the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Technology and Society of the Malmö University (Malmö, Sweden).

Previously, I was Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering within the Software Engineering Division of the Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg.
Before, I was Research Fellow in the Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics of the Universita' degli Studi dell'Aquila. I got my PhD in April 2011 and my advisor was Prof. Paola Inverardi.

The overall goal of my research work is to enable software interoperability and build self-adaptive software systems automatically by integrating third-party software systems through the use of synthesized connectors or mediators that enable the interaction among the already developed systems.
Specifically, my research is mainly focused on the automated synthesis of self-adaptive connectors, for the interoperability between mismatching protocols by exploiting formal methods. In case of systems made up by already interacting but non self-adaptive subsystems, my research concentrates on making them self-adaptive.
The adopted formally grounded approach faces both functional and non functional aspects.

My research interests are in the field of Software Engineering and include: Software Architectures, Software Connectors (or Mediators), Automatic Synthesis of Mediators, Formal Methods, Self-Adaptive Systems, Interoperability, Pattern of Connectors, Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing, Middleware for Ubiquitous Computing, Performance and Dependability Analysis.
