I am currently working as part-time associate professor in the Programming Theory group at the University of Bergen as part of the Secure Mobile Data Collection Systems, while holding a full time position as researcher at the Norwegian Defence Research Center (FFI). I previously worked as a postdoc in the SHIP project (Secure Heterogeneous Information Presentation).










EDUCATION:

I graduated in Computer Engineering with ``summa cum laudae'' at the ``Università degli studi Roma Tre'' in Rome in December 2004, with the thesis:

``Selective Visual Attention: From the Neurobiological Basis to a Computational Implementation''

After that, I studied as a PhD student of the Algorithms Group at the Informatic Department of the University of Bergen under the supervision of Pinar Heggernes.

I graduated in September 2008 with the thesis:

Graph Modification Problems Related to Graph Classes” (Part 1)
