I am a Research Scientist at Google, New York working in the Graph Mining team (part of the NYC Algorithm team) lead by Vahab Mirrokni. I received a Ph.D in computer science from Sapienza University of Rome, where I was advised by Professor Alessandro Panconesi and supported by the Google Europe Ph.D. Fellowship in Algorithms, 2011. I was also a post-doc at the department of computer science of Brown Univerisity in Providence (RI), USA where I was advised by Professor Eli Upfal. During my Ph.D. studies I was twice an intern at Google Mountain View (2012, 2014) and once at Google NYC (2013). My research interests include algorithmic problems in data mining in particular in the analysis of large-scale graphs and social networks.
