I have an academic and educational
background in Software Engineering and Computer Science covering both solution-oriented and knowledge-oriented research. I have been working in different countries and contexts and I have a consolidated
experience on EU projects. I am very active in the
research community and I collaborate with various companies around the world. The
three main research areas in which we are working are:
Modelling and verifying adaptable and self-adaptable systems should cover both adaptation that
can be planned at design-time and adaptation that cannot be anticipated at design-time. We make use of techniques, including: algebraic graph transformations techniques, typed (hyper) graph grammars, assume-guarantee and contracts, learning approaches, goal-oriented assurance techniques, controller synthesis, and also an hybrid approach
combining control theory and AI for engineering self-adaptive systems. We also investige ethical aspects of autonomous and smart systems.
Software engineering is called to play a key role in making robotic research pervasive and ubiquitous and in democratizing the use of robots in everyday-life scenarios. There is the need of rethinking the development processes, as well as the architecting, designing and integration of robotic software. We also focus on proposing solutions to enable the specification of complex missions for multi-robots in a used-friendly way.
We have consolidated experience in languages for providing architecture descriptions and in architecture frameworks (ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010:2011). We also investigated the role of the architecture when companies are transitioning towards the adoption of agile methodologies. We mainly investigated this research area in the automotive domain and specifically in collaboration with Volvo cars, while investigating the software and electrical architecture of next generation of vehicles.
Experience in European, Swedish, Italian, and Luxembourgish research projects, from basic research till industrial research. Get in contact if you want to collaborate in future projects.

During 2020, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic I participated to a project to mass-produce low cost, easy to use, and open source mechanical ventilators. The project is called Mechanical Ventilator Milano (MVM) and among the leaders has Cristiano Galbiati from GSSI and Princeton University, and the Nobel Prize in Physics 2015, Arthur B. McDonald. Within the project, I was involved
in the software certification, especially on the architecture, design and unit and integration testing.
Vexos received the Health Canada authorization for manufacture and is producing the ventilator in USA and Canada. We are waiting for the European Certification Authority to get the CE marking.
