About I am a Research Scientist at Yahoo Labs - London.
I received my PhD in System Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Calabria, Italy in 2012.
My research focuses on the development of data mining and machine learning techniques for recommendations, tracking information diffusion, viral marketing and community detection in social networks.
Before joining Yahoo in 2012, I was a fellow researcher at ICAR-CNR, where my activities focused on probabilistic topic models and their application to collaborative filtering scenarios. I am a co-author of the book "Probabilistic Approaches to Recommendations" published by Chapman & Hall/CRC Pres
