Bio Sketch

I was born in 1970 in Sienna, Italy.

I took my M.S. Degree in Computer Science at the University of Pisa in 1998.

I took my PhD in 2003 with a thesis about the estimation of XML query cardinality: if you are still interested, you can download a copy from here.

My current research interests involve XML, semistructured data, p2p, data exchange, and data integration.
