His research is focused on the design and develops of metaheuristics and nature-inspired algorithms for optimization tasks in combinatorial, and systems biology problems. In particular, his main works have been focused on protein structure prediction in HP model; parameters extraction in biological networks (Gene Regulatory Network in the S-system model, and Recurrent Neural Networks); graph coloring problem; and functions optimization. He was founder of the “TaoScience Research Center”, and he recently founded the “Advanced New Technologies research laboratory (ANTs laboratory)”, of which he is scientific director. Currently he was Chair of the Task Force on Artificial Immune Systems for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (May 1, 2014 - April 30, 2018), and since February 2015 he is Vice-Chair of the Task Force on Interdisciplinary Emergent Technologies for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. He has an extensive experience of organising successful international workshops, conferences and summer school, such as for instances ICARIS 2012, PPSN 2012, ECAL 2013, ICSI^3 2015, SSBSS 2014, SSBSS 2015, HN 2016, MESS 2018.
