I am a Rita Levi-Montalcini Research Fellow working at the University of Brescia, Italy. This fellowship (also known as "Rientro dei Cervelli") by the Italian Ministry of Research and Education enables young researchers to apply for a three years research fellowship in an Italian university of their choice (success rate of less that 8%). I am also the Chair of the local branch (node) of the Italian Cybersecurity National Laboratory and member of Group of Expert Evaluators for the current edition of the Italian Evaluation of Research Quality (VQR) exercise.
My research is about learning and reasoning with uncertain and sparse data for supporting (cyber-threat) intelligence analysis. I co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed papers, including several journal papers, and co-edited two books. More details on Google Scholar and DBLP.
Prior to my personal fellowship, I was the first Academic Director of the Cardiff University Data Science Academy, and Senior Lecturer at the School of Computer Science and Informatics of Cardiff University.
