"Cyber-Physical Systems are engineering, physical and biological systems whose operations
are integrated, monitored, and/or controlled by a computational core. Components are networked at every scale.
Computing is deeply embedded into every physical component, possibly even into materials.
The computational core is an embedded system, usually demands real-time response, and is most often distributed.
The behavior of a cyber-physical system is a fully-integrated hybridisation of computational (logical) and physical action."

In Brief:

I am currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor (holding the National Habilitation as Associate Professor in Italy) at the Institute of Computer Engineering, Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien). The primary focus of my research is to develop formal methods, computational tools and techniques which support the modeling and the automated analysis of complex computational systems, including software systems, cyber-physical systems and biological systems. On these topics I was the author and co-author of more than 60 papers published in refereed journals, edited books, and refereed conference proceedings.

I joined the Faculty of Informatics at Vienna University of Technology in 2012 as University Assistant. In Dec. 2014 I won a "Laufbahnstelle" becoming a tenure-track Assistant Professor. Previously I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science (Research Scientist - from March 2011) and at the Department of Applied Math and Statistics (Research Associate - from February 2010) of the State University of New York at Stony Brook. My research area, in the framework of the NSF Expeditions in Computing project CMACS, was the Computational Modelling and Analysis of Cardiac Dynamics for Prediction and Control of Cardiac Arrhythmia. I received the B.S. degree in Computer Science and the M.S. degree in Bioinformatics from the University of Camerino in Italy, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. During my M.S. degree in Bioinformatics I won a scholarship (from June 2003 to Feb 2004) funded by the MIUR project Oncology Over Internet (O2I). In 2009 I got a Ph.D. in Complex Systems and Information Sciences from the University of Camerino. In 2014 I earned the National Italian Habilitation as Associate Professor in Computer Science by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research.

I co-chaired several international events, such as HSB 2012, the First International Workshop on Hybrid Systems and Biology, SPIN 2013, the 20th Intern. Symposium on Model Checking Software, the CSRV-2014, the First Intl. Competition of Software Runtime Verification in Canada, the Medical CPS track at Isola 2014 and in 2015 he will co-chair in Vienna the 15th Intl. Conference on Runtime Verification. I also serve as Editorial Board Member of the International Journal of Information and Computation (Elsevier). I represent Austria in the management committee of the EU COST ICT action ARVI on Runtime Verification and I co-chair the RV core working group in this action.
