Francesco Bianchi - PhD Student
Short Bio
I am currently a Ph.D. student in Informatics at University of Lugano, Switzerland. In particular, I'm working in the STAR group, led by prof. Mauro Pezzè, whose research main topic is software testing and analysis.
I got both my bachelor and master's degrees at University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy.
My research interests focus mainly on improving scalability of program verification and analysis techniques and on testing and analysis of concurrrent software systems.
For further informations, you can find my Curriculum Vitae here.

Master Thesis
Title
Study, design and evaluation of a technique for storing and reusing satisfiability proofs using MapReduce paradigm.
Supervisors
Professor Mauro Pezzè & Professor Giovanni Denaro
Description
The project aimed to reduce the impact of constraint solving techniques that represent the main bottleneck for verification approaches. The basic idea of this work is that constraints can occur many times during the same or different analysis; for this reason we proposed a technique for storing and reusing satisfiability proofs, aiming to improve the actual constraint solvers performance.
Bachelor Thesis
Title
A concurrent simulator for Petri Nets based on the paradigm of Actors of Hewitt.
Supervisors
Professor Lucia Pomello & Dr. Luca Bernardinello
Description
The goal of this project was to design and implement a concurrent simulator for Petri Nets written in Scala, an object-oriented programming language built over Java. Scala implements concurrency through the paradigm of Actors of Hewitt and during the project a series of experiments have been made in order to compare the degree of concurrency offered by Java threads and Scala actors.
