My current affiliation is DISI (Department of computer science and engineering at Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna). I also collaborate with:
- ECLT (European Centre for Living Technology)
- IRIDIA (Institut de Recherches Interdisciplinaires et de Développements en Intelligence Artificielle) - Université Libre de Bruxelles.
- NAXYS (Namur Center for Complex Systems) - Université de Namur.
My interests are in artificial intelligence and complex systems. Main themes are:
- Robotics and bio-inspired robotics
- Boolean networks and other genetic regulatory network models
- Emergence in complex systems
- Automatic design and optimisation of complex systems (mainly by means of metaheuristics)
