I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Computing and Engineering of the University of Huddersfield. I am a member of the PARK (Planning, Autonomy and Representation of Knowledge) research group, led by Lee McCluskey and Grigoris Antoniou.

I received my PhD in March 2012 from the University of Brescia. My supervisor was Alfonso Gerevini, co-supervisor Alessandro Saetti.
I worked at the planning group of the University of Brescia, as a postdoctoral research fellow, till September 2012. In October 2012 I moved to the University of Huddersfield, where I served as a research fellow till April 2016.

My main research interest is in Artificial Intelligence Planning. In particular I work on domain-independent planning, SAT-based planning, machine learning, portfolio approaches, heuristic search, genetic algorithms, automatic algorithm configuration. I am also interested in the fields of Abstract Argumentation, innovative applications of AI in Medicine, and Computational Creativity.
