My PhD thesis Type Systems for Distributed Programs: Components and Sessions won the prize for the Best Italian PhD Thesis in Theoretical Computer Science 2015, awarded by the Italian Chapter of EATCS. I obtained my BSc (2008) and MSc (2010) in computing science both summa cum laude (110/110 e lode), from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.
