Sapienza University of Rome, Italy
Francesco Leotta got his PhD in Engineering in Computer Science at Sapienza in 2014, where he currently covers the position of Assistant Professor. Since the beginning of his research activity, he has addressed several challenges related to how users interact with a smart space and how the environment senses the users and reactively performs actions to meet user requirements. In this research context, he developed an approach, called habit mining, where techniques typical of Business Process Management (BPM) and Process Mining can be adapted to user habit modelling and discovery. Beside this main research activity, his research interests cover advanced user interfaces, service-oriented architectures (SOA), matchmaking applied to entrepreneurship, and e-Government. He regularly serves as a reviewer for international conferences and journals in the fields of smart spaces and information systems engineering.
