My primary research interests lie in algorithmics and mathematical modeling, particularly in the contexts of social networks and the Web.

I am the head of a research group that includes Marco Bressan, Shahrzad Haddadan, Fabio Vitale. These people, and the activities of the research group, are supported by the following grants of which I am the principal investigator: the ERC Starting Grant DMAP 680153, and the PRIN project 2017K7XPAN. The group is also supported by a Google Focused Research Award, of which I am a co-principal investigator.

I serve as an associate editor for ACM Transactions on Algorithms.

I am serving, or have served, on the program committees of HALG 2020, ICALP 2020, NeurIPS 2019, KDD 2019 (senior PC member), STOC 2019, WWW 2019, CIKM 2018 (senior PC member), NeurIPS 2018, KDD 2018 (senior PC member), ICML 2018, ESA 2018, KDD 2017 (senior PC member), WWW 2017, WSDM 2017, ICALP 2016, WWW 2015 (poster track co-chair), SODA 2015, WSDM 2014, EWSSN 2013, WWW 2013, PODC 2012, WWW 2012, WWW 2011 and PKDD 2010.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Sapienza University of Rome. My advisor was Alessandro Panconesi. During my studies I spent many summers as an intern at Yahoo! Research, mentored by Ravi Kumar.

After my Ph.D., I spent two years as a post-doc in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University, advised by Jon Kleinberg.

I am a frequent visitor of Google Mountain View.
