I am "Maître de Conférences" (assistant professor) at LIX (Ecole Polytechnique), since september 2008. I am working on different domains of theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics: computational geometry, combinatorics and planar graphs, graph drawing. My main research topics are succinct data structures, Schnyder woods, graph encoding and mesh compression, higher genus triangulations, ...
During 2007/08 I have been at ULB (Brussels) as post-doc researcher (Algorithms Research Group). Before, I was full time lecturer in CS ("Ater") during 2006/07 at Université Marne-la-Vallée. I received my PhD in CS from Ecole Polytechnique (december 2006). I spent 3 years at LIX (Ecole Polytechnique) and at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (Projet Geometrica), from october 2003 to december 2006. My PhD advisors were Olivier Devillers (INRIA) and Gilles Schaeffer (CNRS, LIX).
Before my PhD I obtained the "DEA Algorithmique" (now "MPRI"), during 2002/03 at Université Paris 6. Before leaving Italy, I obtained the "Laurea" in applied mathematics (M. Sc.) from the University of Milan (Dep. of Mathematics). I also spent 6 months at the Université de Versailles-St. Quentin as Erasmus student (during 1999).
