Then, from 2000 to 2004 he worked as a Research Associate at the School of Engineering of the University of Bologna (Dept. of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems-DEIS). Starting from December 2004 he has been Associate Professor, currently in force at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (DISI).

Institutional services and roles. He has been a member for 9 years of the Executive committee (Giunta) of the Department of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems (DEIS). From 2003 to 2004 he has been a member of the School's Teaching Commission, then - some years later - of the School's Census Commission. He also coordinated for some years the commission in charge of evaluating students' transfers and curricula as concerns Computer Engineering.
