I’m an Associate Professor at the FIM Department of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. I got the Italian National Habilitation (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale) as Full Professor in the Scientific Sector 01/B1 (Computer Science) and 09/H1 (Information Processing Systems).
I received the Laurea degree in Computer Science from the University of Bologna (Italy) in 1997. In the same year, I started my Ph.D. experience at DEIS (University of Bologna) and on march 2001 I received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science Engineering with a thesis entitled “Temporal Schema Versioning in Object-Oriented Databases”.

Interests and selected publications

My research activity is in the field of data and information management and access. My current interests mainly focus on information sharing and exchange in heterogeneous and distributed contexts, stream data management, scalable data science, and data-centric AI. In the past, I worked on non-conventional data like textual information, tree-structured and graph-structured data, on temporal databases and schema versioning, and on personalized data access. My activities within these areas cover a wide spectrum, including theory and foundations, algorithm design, software and systems, and engagement with industry.

This is a selected list of my recent publications on these topics:

  • Davide Ferrari, Veronica Guidetti, Federica Mandreoli: Multi-Objective Symbolic Regression for Data-Driven Scoring System Management IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM), Orlando (FL), Dec. 2022. Open source code available on GitHub;
  • Fabio Grandi, Federica Mandreoli, Riccardo Martoglia, Wilma Penzo: Unleashing the power of querying streaming data in a temporal database world: A relational algebra approach. Information Systems 103: 101872 (2022);
  • Karl Hribernik, Giacomo Cabri, Federica Mandreoli, Gregoris Mentzas: Autonomous, context-aware, adaptive Digital Twins - State of the art and roadmap. Computers in Industry 133: 103508 (2021)
