About me

I am a Professore Aggregato of Artificial Intelligence at the Dept. of Information Engineering and Mathematics (DIISM) of the Univ. of Siena (Italy). I am the Chair of the IAPR-TC3 (International Association for Pattern Recognition Technical Committee 03 - Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence), and an Associate Editor of the journal Neural Processing Letters (Springer). Previously I served as Vice-Chair of the IAPR-TC3 (years 2013-2014 and 2015-2016), and I held the Secretariat of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (years 2005-2006).

My scientific interests embrace artificial neural networks (ANN), probabilistic interpretation of ANNs, density estimation via ANNs, probabilistic graphical models for sequences, machine learning for graphs, combination of ANNs and graphical models. Applications include speech processing, forensic anthropology, and bioinformatics.
