Since 2010 I've co-authored several papers in the field of computing education.

I served as Associate Program Chair of ACM ITiCSE 2020 and 2019. I'm co-chair of ACM ICER 2021 lightning talks and posters. I was member of the Program Committee of ISSEP 2018. I serve as reviewer for ACM ICER, ACM SIGCSE, ACM ITiCSE, ISSEP (conferences) Computer Science Education, Informatics in Education (journals).

I'm one of the founders of ALaDDIn (Lab of Didactics and Dissemination of Informatics) at Computer Science Department of University of Milan.

In 2011, 2017, and 2019 ALaDDIn was awarded by Google within its CS[4]HS program. In 2016 ALaDDIn was awarded the "Best Practices in Education" award by Informatics Europe.
