Michienzi Andrea got a Bachelor degree in December 2015 followed by a Master degree in October 2017 in Computer Science at the Università di Pisa with a thesis titled “Discovering and managing dynamic communities in Distributed Online Social Networks”. Starting from November 2017, he is a PhD student at the Department of Computer Science at the Università di Pisa, a position he is still holding at the present times.
His main research interests are distributed systems and complex network analysis. More in detail, he is currently investigating techniques for community detection throughout time, focusing on exploiting these mechanisms for the development of Distributed Online Social Networks.
