My research domain concerns the intelligent analysis of data.

My team works on making sense of data by developing and using data-driven models using Machine Learning approaches (e.g., Neural Networks, Deep Learning and Bio-inspired approaches) or agent-based models with the aims of  providing solutions that deal with the current scenario of “data deluge” (Big Data) and to support adaptive behavior for the new ubiquitous computing world (Wearable Computing, Quantified Self, Smart environments, Autonomous robots, & Internet of Things).

Our ongoing and recent projects are:
