I am a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow, working on Artificial Intelligence for Urban Traffic Management and Control. More information about the Fellowship can be found here.

I received my PhD in March 2012 from the University of Brescia, Italy. My supervisor was Alfonso Gerevini, co-supervisor Alessandro Saetti.

I worked at the planning group of the University of Brescia, as a postdoctoral research fellow, till September 2012.

In October 2012 I joined the PARK research group at the University of Huddersfield, as a research fellow in areas of automated planning. I then got a Senior Lecturership in May 2016, and moved to a Readership in August 2020, and finally got a Professorship in August 2022.

Research Expertise and Interests

My main research interests are in Artificial Intelligence Planning and Argumentation. In particular I work on domain-independent planning, SAT-based planning, machine learning, abstract argumentation, portfolio approaches, heuristic search, genetic algorithms, and automatic algorithm configuration.

I am active in the field of AI applications to Urban Traffic Control, that is also the topic of my UKRI FLF.

I am also interested in the fields of innovative applications of AI in Medicine, and Computational Creativity.
