Cosimo, please tell us about your work as an Associate Professor at the Università del Piemonte Orientale. What does a typical day look like for you?
The University of Piemonte Orientale is a mid-sized University located in Piemonte, in the North-West of Italy. I work in the Computer Science Institute, which is located in Alessandria, one of the three campuses of the university.
As a Professor, my duties are research and teaching. My current research fields are digital forensics and distributed systems. My typical day consists in doing research in the lab (both directly and by coordinating my collaborators), mentoring students, and teaching. At the moment I teach classes in Digital Forensics, in Operating Systems, and in Distributed Systems, both at the undergraduate and at the graduate level.
