CurriculumVitae et Studiorum

 

Michelangelo Ceci received a "laurea"degree with full marks and honors in Informatics from the University of Bari (March 2001). He discussed a thesis on "Knowledgediscovery in relational database: design and implementation of theclassification package in KDB2000".

Following graduation, he kept on making research inmachine learning and data mining in the Knowledge Acquisition andMachine Learning Laboratory (LACAM), Department of Informatics of theUniversity of Bari. He is currently/has been involved in thefollowing projects:

·         IST - 1999 -10536 project SPIN! "Spatial Mining on data of Public Interest"

·         MURST COFIN -1999 project on " ModelliStatistici di Classificazione e di Segmentazione per l'Analisi di DatiStrutturati in Forma Complessa: Metodologia, software e Applicazioni".

·         IST-1999-20882project Collate "Collaboratory forAutomation, Indexing and Retrieval of Digitized Historical ArchiveMaterial"

·         MURST 2002 Scoperta di conoscenzain basi di dati: metodi e tecniche efficienti e robuste per dati complessi

·         IST-1999-12641 project FAIRWIS(Trade Fair Web-based Information Services).

Since November 2001 he has been employed as PhDstudent under the supervision of Prof.Donato Malerba at the Department of Informatics, University ofBari. He defended his Ph.D. Thesis in 2004.

Since 2005 he has been employed as assistantprofessor at the Department of Informatics, University of Bari wherehe teaches in the courses of Programming Languages,Anvanced Computer Programming Methods e DataBases and Laboratory.

During the period November 2003 March2004 he collaborated as research student with the MachineLearning Research Group headed by prof. PeterFlach of the Department of Computer Science, University ofBristol (U.K.)

His mainresearch is in Knowledge Discovery from Databases primarily in thedevelopment of Data Mining algorithms for predictive tasks(classification and regression). In particular, he studies algorithmsfor the induction of statistical classifiers and model trees.Theoretical foundations of his research are in statistics and inlogic. Adopted technologies include Database technologies (Databaselanguages, indexing), multimedia technologies (images and textindexing, spatial data) and Internet (XML). Research applicationsinclude document analysis and understanding, map interpretation,web-documents classification.
