Iceland Þjóðvegur

We drove on the whole Hringvegur (Route 1) in Iceland, between the 21st and the 27th of May 2017. We recorded a large part of it. This is the 18x time lapse of what we recorded.

PhD Thesis

I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Milan, advised by Paolo Boldi, as a part of the Laboratory of Web Algorithmics.

My PhD dissertation dealt with how to perform inference in complex networks when you have a great number of attributes (or features) on their nodes. For instance, you can discover that some features might repel each other or attract each other, fostering or hindering links. Discovering these patterns allows to ask which groups of features have more effect, or to look for unusual interactions.
