Gianlorenzo D’Angelo, post doc researcher in Computer Science at GSSI, was awarded the “Best Italian Young Researcher in Theoretical Computer Science” by the Italian Chapter of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS). “Gianlorenzo D'Angelo obtained remarkable new results in the following areas of theoretical computer science: approximation algorithms, scheduling, distributed algorithms, algorithms and data structures for dynamic graphs, algorithm engineering and complex network analysis”, the award committee – composed by Pino Di Battista, Simone Faro e Dino Mandrioli – wrote. “The contribution of Gianlorenzo D'Angelo in such areas lead to a significant progress in the knowledge of the respective fields of theoretical computer science, making the author amongst the most known researchers in the international scientific community, as witnessed by the excellent publication venues and by the numerous citations obtained, despite the relatively short period of time.” Gianlorenzo D'Angelo obtained his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of L’Aquila, Italy in 2004, 2006 and 2010, respectively. Before joining GSSI, where he is currently a post-doc researcher, he was a post-doc at the University of L'Aquila, at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (France), at the University of Perugia (Italy), and at the University of Pisa (Italy). He is (co)author of more than 70 papers in international journals and peer-reviewed conference proceedings. His research interests include combinatorial algorithms, scheduling, combinatorial optimization, computational complexity, network analysis, distributed computing, and algorithm engineering. EATCS is an international organization founded in 1972. Its aim is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and results among theoretical computer scientists as well as to stimulate cooperation between the theoretical and the practical community in computer science. Its Italian Chapter was founded in 1988.
