I am Lise Meitner fellow at TU Vienna (EDENSPACE, Austrian Science Foundation). Previously, I was post-doctoral researcher at the Distibuted Systems Group (SmartCT, chair prof. Schahram Dustdar) and at Politecnico di Milano, where I received (2017) my PhD defending a thesis entitled "Modelling and Verification of Evolving Cyber-Physical Spaces". My advisor was prof. Carlo Ghezzi. My research interests lie in the intersection of distributed systems and software engineering, and include dependable self-adaptive and cyber-physical systems, requirements engineering and formal verification.

  • Sept'20: How can we scale up verification of complex reactive systems? Different model projections corresponding to requirements may be derived (and synchronized) on the specification level automatically, achieving cone-of-influence reduction on (later) analysis. Paper on ASE20!

  • Jul'20: Paper on early validation of cyber-physical systems with multi-concern statistical verification to appear on JSS

  • Jan'20: Paper on spatial model checking on the cloud on behalf of IoT devices to appear on TOIT
