Marco Aiello Career

Before joining the RUG he was a Lise Meitner fellow at the Technical University of Vienna (from which he obtained the Habilitation), and assistant professor at the University of Trento. He holds a PhD in Logic from the Univeristy of Amsterdam and a MSc in Engineering from the University of Rome La Sapienza cum Laude.

My research focuses on four main areas which are tied by the thread of space meant as spatial distribution of computation, spatial representation, and spatial reasoning. In particular, the fields of my research interests are Service-Oriented Computing, Domotics, Computer Vision, and Spatial Reasoning.
