I received the M.Sc. Degree in Civil Engineering (2004) and Ph.D. in Infrastructure, Structure and Transportation Engineering (2008) at University of Trieste, Italy. I am now working as freelance consultant at Public Administrations and private companies on complex tasks about mobility planning.
My working activities are primarily related to: assessment and design of urban street networks; urban planning, modelling, simulation and analysis of transportation networks by means of self-developed tools and through commercial software such as PTV VISUM, PTV VISSIM, OmniTRANS, OpenTrack.
My research activity goes towards the application and extension of complex networks theories on transportation systems. Some results about railway timetabling have been introduced in conferences about Transportation Engineering (ISTS 2006, INSTR 2007, RAILROME 2011) and Complex Networks (ECCS13, ECCS14).
Since November 2014, I’m keeping on research on data analysis and modelling of urban mobility through social networks language identification and land use patterns at IFISC in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
