  About me    
  I'm assistant professor in Computer Science at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Catania, Italy. My research is focused on the design and develop of nature-inspired algorithms for optimization tasks, which have been applied on several research areas, as combinatorial; numerical; and systems biology problems.

In November 2009 I was a visiting professor at the School of Computer Science, University of Nottingham (UK), where I worked with Prof. Natalio Krasnogor (link).

In 2006 I was a visiting researcher at the IBM-KAIST Bio-Computing Research Center, Department of Bio and Brain Engineering, at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Republic of Korea, where I worked with Prof. Doheon Lee (link).

I'm member of the Editorial Board for some international journals, as well as member of Program Committees for several international conferences and workshops. I'm editor of some special issues published in Natural Computing and Memetic Computing journals, and I have been, and I am co-chair of many international conferences.

I am co-founder of TaoScience Research center with Prof. Giuseppe Nicosia (link).

In January 2014 I have got the National Scientific Qualification for Associate Professor in Computer Science

Since April 2014 I have been nominated Chair of the Task Force on Artificial Immune Systems for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE CIS) (link).

Since February 2015 I am Vice-Chair of the Task Force on Interdisciplinary Emergent Technologies for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (Emergent Technologies Technical Committee - ETTC).
