"Insanity is the inability to communicate your ideas. It's as if you were in a foreign country, able to see and understand everything that's going on around you but incapable of explaining what you need to know or of being helped, because you don't understand the language they speak there."
Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

Ciao, welcome to my homepage! Since January 2014, I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in Computer Science at the School of Computing of Teesside University. I joined the school as a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in January 2012. Before that, I have held a PostDoctoral research fellowship within EcCo group at the Computer Science Department of the University of Liverpool in connection with an EPSRC-funded project "Efficient Decentralised Approaches in Algorithmic Game Theory." I moved to Liverpool in December 2007 from Salerno (Italy) to join the CTAG research group and work on a DFG-funded project "Algorithmic Tools for Games with Applications to E-Commerce and Networks" within Emmy Noether Program first and later on an EPSRC-funded project "Algorithmic Mechanism Design and Optimization Problems with Economic Applications." Back in Italy, I was awarded PhD and Laurea degree (MSc equivalent) in Computer Science and was involved in several EU-funded projects.

News: In December, I will be moving to the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering of the University of Essex to direct the Centre for Computational Finance and Economic Agents. Please consider using my gmail address for communication during the switchover.

Research Grant: EPSRC grant EP/M018113/1 "Incentives without monetary transfers.''
