I was born in Campobasso (Italy) on April 24th, 1990. I graduated from the University of Salerno (Italy) in 2015.
I received a Master's Degree (cum laude) in Computer Science, advised by Prof. Andrea De Lucia, defending a thesis on Search Based Software Testing.
In November 2016 i joined the Student at the Software Evolution and Architecture Lab ( s.e.a.l.) led by Harald Gall, where I started officially my PhD in February 2017. I successfully defended (with distinction) my dissertation in March 2021.
Prior to my PhD, I worked for 1 year in industry. I spent the summer of 2020 as a Software Engineer Intern at JetBrains, Munich.
My research interests include Search Based Software Engineering, Software maintenance and evolution and Empirical Software Engineering.
