I am Associate Professor in Operations Research (01/A6, MAT/09 - Ricerca Operativa) at the Department of Management, Information and Production Engineering at the University of Bergamo, ITALY.

My research interests center on optimization for machine learning problems and optimization of sequential decision problems under uncertainty using Stochastic Programming, Robust and Distributionally Robust Optimization. My methodological research is mainly based on bounding and approximating this class of difficult decision problems. Moreover, I like to combine theoretical work with applications inspired by real-case problems provided by companies mainly operating in logistics, waste management and energy systems.
My research regularly features in peer-reviewed operations research journals (e.g., European Journal of Operations Research, Transportation Science, Annals of Operations Research, International Journal of Production Economics, Computational Management Science) and mathematical journals (e.g., SIAM Journal on Optimization, Journal of Optimization, Theory and Applications).
Former research interests related to my PhD, are on geometric, topological and energetic aspects of knotted filaments with publications in Proceeding of the Royal Society A, Physical Review E, Il Nuovo Cimento C, Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, etc (see Research).

I am chair of the EURO Working Group on Stochastic Optimization, of the AIRO Thematic Section of Stochastic Programming and secretary of the Stochastic Programming Society.

I currently serve on the editorial board of Computational Management Science as Associate Editor, on the editorial board of EURO Journal on Computational Optimization as Associate Editor.

In September 2018 I received the Italian Habilitations (ASN) as Full Professor in Operations Research (01/A6, MAT/09) and in Mathematical Methods for Economics and Finance (13/D4, SECS-S/06).

In March 2021 I have been appointed as Deputy Director of the PhD program in Applied Economics & Management (Applied Economics curriculum), University of Pavia and Bergamo.

In October 2021 I have received the PRIN grant as Principal Investigator (project code 20207C8T9M, score 100/100, MIUR grant 417800 Euros) for the ULTRA OPTYMAL project on "Urban Logistics and sustainable TRAnsportation: OPtimization under uncertainTY and MAchine Learning" with UniBS, UniCal and UniMib.

I teach and consult in the areas of Operations Research and Optimization (see Teaching and Consultancies).
