Research

My research regards computational tools in legal informatics and more generally tools stemming from the intersection of computer sciences and normative systems, with applications ranging from legal expert systems and smart contracts to norm-governed socio-technical systems.

This research has a layered architecture dealing with: (i) (rule-based) argumentation (ii) probabilistic argumentation (iii) learning and strategy and (iv) (self-) organisation. See my publications.
