I received a PhD in Computer Science at University of Ancona in 1998. Between March and October 1998, I continued my research activity at University of Macerata and University of Ancona. In November 1998, I joined as Post-Doc the Mechanized Reasoning Group at Dipartimento di Informatica e Studi Aziendali (DISA), and then the Information Engineering and Computer Science Department (DISI), University of Trento. I have been visiting researcher at the Computer Science Department of University of Toronto (2000) and at the Software Engineering Department of University of Technology, Sydney (2005). Now, I'm the head of the International Doctoral School on ICT at University of Trento and I'm leading the Software Engineering,  Formal Methods, and Security research group at DISI.

My current research interests lie in the area of Requirements Engineering, Goal-Oriented and Agent-Oriented Software Engineering, Multi-Agent Systems, Mobile and Context-Aware applications. I was co-founder of the International Journal of Agent-oriented Software Engineering and I contributed to the organization of many international (AO)Software Engineering and Agent events (see more here).
