**Short bio**

I received my PhD in Mathematics from the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa. I have been Visiting Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Visiting Professor at the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Melbourne. I have been Assistant Professor of Numerical Analysis at the University of Torino, and Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Eastern Piedmont. I am currently Professor of Computer Science at the University of Pisa and research associate at the Institute of Informatics and Telematics of the National Research Council. In 2022 I was awarded the ACM Paris Kanellakis Theory and Practice Award for my contributions to the field of compressed indices. Full CV.

**Research**

My current research interest is the design of algorithms and data
structures for solving theoretical and applied problems in the fields of Data
Compression and Indexing Data Structures for Massive Data Sets.
