Research Interests

I am interested in the Design, Analysis and Efficient Implementation of Algorithms. My work follows an Algorithm Engineering approach, combining theory and experimentation, and is (currently) mostly focused on: algorithms for efficient processing of massive (possibly dynamic) graphs; study of distributed systems, networks, systems of autonomous entities (e.g. agents, robots or drones) from an algorithmic perspective (including game theoretic, strategic aspects).
