Feel free to explore some of the details of my professional activities and personal interests around here.
You will have a hard time to find my unwilling footprints on social profiles, but you can try...
By the way: I don't drink coffee, to someone this seems a useful hint on my personality.

About My Work

I am currently a Ph.D. Student in Software Engineering at the Faculty of Informatics, Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI), in the beautiful city of Lugano - Switzerland. I also work as Research Assistant in the Reverse Engineering, Visualization, Evolution Analysis Lab - REVEAL research group. The supervisor of my academic and research activity is Prof. Dr. Michele Lanza, founder of the REVEAL research group and director of the Software Institute.

My research interests span from software development and its lifecycle to machine learning applied to software repository mining for code quality analysis.

I am also Teaching Assistant for the Fall semester in two courses for the Master in Software and Data Engineering: "Engineering of Domain Specific Languages" held by Prof. Dr. Andrea Mocci and "S&DE Atelier: Design 101" held by Prof. Dr. Michele Lanza.

About Me

I have many interests linked to software development and its tools. I am proficient with Java and C++. I enjoyed programming in Assembler in my youth. I'm currently (slowly) upgrading my python skills. I have a general tendency to solve problems by coding solutions that can adapt to new scenarios (because I'm lazy, if this makes sense). Even a simple browser game is a good excuse to develop a piece of software to automate the decision making process. This usually stops the fun in the game and transfers it in developing the tool...

I like to play different computer games but I'm particularly fond of simulations. Most of all racing and flying simulations. There's some magic in replicating the real world, every year more faithfully.

I've had my fair share of interests like photography and music but I would describe them as on/off short term passions.
