Hi! I'm a PhD student in Computer Science Education at USI (Lugano, 🇨🇭). I work at the LuCE research group under the excellent supervision of professor Matthias Hauswirth. I am currently spending a semester abroad at Aalto University (🇫🇮). While I'm fascinated by many CS topics, I have a particular interest in effective
education and good teaching. This curriculum describes my path, in case you are interested.
