I am a Professor in the Informatics Faculty at USI, Lugano.

I am interested in the interaction between compiler and architecture design, particularly in the field of embedded systems.

My research efforts have mostly revolved around the automation of embedded processor customization, and the definition of innovative reconfigurable fabrics --- again both in terms of how to architect them, and how to compile onto them.

Recently, I have also become interested in the bioinformatics problem of devising exact algorithms for the prediction of optimal structures in lattice protein models.
