I’m an assistant professor (with a fixed term contract) at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. I work in the KRDB Research Centre for Knowledge and Data with Prof. Diego Calvanese. In general, I am interested in combining theoretical research and reasoning engines implementation in KR. Currently, my research focuses on Ontology-base Data Access (OBDA). I am leading the development team of Ontop OBDA system which supports W3C recommendations SPARQL, R2RML, and OWL 2 QL. Research Interests Knowledge Representation Description Logics, Ontology, Semantic Web Ontology-based Data Access Nonmontonic Reasoning, Logic Programming, Answer Set Programming Combination of Rules and Ontologies Algorithms and Computational Complexity in AI Implementation and Optimization of Reasoning Systems Common Sense Reasoning, Inconsistency Handling, Inconsistency Measurement
