I teach Mathematics courses in Bocconi since 2006. Previously, I performed research in algebraic geometry and computer algebra and teached in different universities in Italy and Germany. I obtained my PhD in 2000 from the Mathematics Department of the University of Padua in collaboration with the University of Bayreuth (Germany). My scientific work focused primarily on algebraic geometry. Later on, I researched influence diagrams, decision trees, decision-network polynomials and the sensitivity of decision-support models. I’m interested in computer algebra and neural networks.
