Office Hours

Friday, Hours 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM,  


The research activity of Pietro Sala  mainly focuses on the following topics:

* Temporal Data Mining: 
theoretical study and realization of algorithms for extracting synthesis information from large quantities of data;

* Biomedical Decision Support Systems: 
modeling and implementation of systems for collecting, managing and analyzing data in the medical/clinical domain, the analysis phase is enriched with temporal data-mining techniques studied in  the previous point and applied here on data coming from real-world medical applications;

* Synthesis and analysis of Processes: 

Modeling, analysis, and synthesis of processes through formal techniques based on first-order/modal  logics formalisms;

* Process Management in the Biomedical Domain: 
implementation of clinical guidelines through formalisms like BPMN and application of formal analysis techniques studied at the previous point in order to improve efficiency in the management of hospital resources;

* Temporal Logics: 
study of the classical decision problems for temporal logics (i.e., decidability, model checking, and synthesis);

Peer-reviewed publications authored by Pietro Sala may be found in international journals and conferences of Theoretical Computer Science (LICS, ICALP, LMCS, JLC), Artificial Intelligence (ECAI, IJCAI, KR, IJCAR) and healthcare informatics (ICHI, CBM).
