My research work focuses on the design, prototype, and evaluation of self-management algorithms for Web services and Cloud systems. In particular, my work aims at the design of optimization algorithms for the maximization of Quality of Service of composed Web services and for the resource management of autonomic infrastructures. Recently, I’m focusing on Model Driven Design, performance analysis, and management of Cloud-based (see the MODAClouds project), data-intensive and deep learning applications (see the DICE,  EUBRA-BIGSEA and ATMOSPHERE projects). I developed also energy efficiency solutions for the management of virtualized infrastructures (GAME-IT project). During my Ph.D. studies, I investigated the problem of cost-oriented design and capacity planning of distributed IT architectures.
