Short Biographical notes

I have been teaching a variety of statistics, financial math, calculus, computer science and computational economics courses at the Economics and Science Faculties of "Ca' Foscari" University, Venice. In 2007, 2014 and 2015 I taught "Artificial Economics" and "An introduction to Complexity in Economics and Social Sciences" (twice) at the Harvard - Ca' Foscari Summer School. In 2010, I organized Artificial Economics 2010 in Treviso (sixth edition).
