About me

I am currently in my last year as a Ph.D. candidate at the University of St Andrews, under the supervision of Prof. Alan Dearle and Dr. Graham Kirby. I work in the area of user models for distributed data in a flat storage space. My sponsors are EPSRC and Adobe System Inc. For more info about my research, feel free to contact me.

Previously, I received a BSc in Computer Science (1st class) at the University of St Andrews. I studied IB at the United World College in Mostar in 2008/2010.

I have also been part of the SACHI research group from February 2012 until June 2014.

My research interests include distributed systems, data models, data science, open data, provenance, storage and software engineering.

Curriculum Vitae (October 2015)


I like road cycling and watching the Giro D'Italia. I hope to get back on a bike soon. In the meanwhile, I do some running and you might see me at the Edinburgh 10K around May.

I like writing for fun. I am currently writing a book about a girl and her adventurous life (yes, I am still working on it as of the year 2017)

I review some of the books I read in this blog (in Italian).

In my free time I go out to shoot with my Canon 7D (500px), I read tech blogs, novels, and make cakes.

My mantra is: "be creative-driven".
