Giordano Da Lozzo

Postdoctoral Researcher

Roma Tre University

Giordano Da Lozzo is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Engineering at the Roma Tre University, mentored by Giuseppe Di Battista. Until October 2017, he was an assistant project scientist at the CECS Department of The Donald Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences at University of California, Irvine, jointly mentored by Michael T. Goodrich and David A. Eppstein. Until September 2016, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Informatics and Automation (DIA) of the Roma Tre University, mentored by Giuseppe Di Battista.

His research interests are in the areas of graph theory, algorithms, and complexity theory, with a particular focus on problems in Graph Drawing, Computational Geometry, and Combinatorial Optimization. He received the “Laurea” Bachelor degree and the “Laurea Magistrale” Master degree in Computer Science and Engineering at the Roma Tre University, and defended his Ph.D. thesis at the Department of Informatics and Automation (DIA) of the same institution, jointly advised by Giuseppe Di Battista and Maurizio Patrignani, on June 2015.
