Michele Lora

Marie Skłodowska-Curie (Global) Fellow | University of Southern California & University of Verona

I am a European computer scientist, with a pretty stamped Italian passport. Now, I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow, holding a joint appointment at the University of Southern California and the University of Verona.

I achieved my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Verona in May 2016, and my research made spend quite some time around the World. The European Union gave me a Pan-European identity through its Erasmus program that allowed me spending a year at the Linköping University in Sweden. There, I approached Research for the first time. Some years later, I have been a visiting researcher at the University of California – Berkeley, where I developed the last part of my Ph.D. Thesis. Between 2018 and 2020 I spent two years and a half in Singapore, working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Singapore University of Technology and Design.

In 2017 I married Anna and with her I have extensively travelled around south-east Asia, Europe and North America. Now, we live in Los Angeles, and she is writing about our adventures around the World in her stunning blog. If you can read Italian, I strongly suggest taking a look at it!
