## Biography

Giovanni Di Gennaro received his Laurea (MS) in * Ingegneria Informatica* summa cum laude from

*Università degli Studi della Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli"*, Italy, in July 2017. Over the years he has worked as a freelancer for various IT companies and has taught programming languages and IT elements both in private and funded (by European funds) courses. From 2016 to 2020 he also received various scholarships funded by the CNIT (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni). In January 2021 he received his Ph.D. in

*and became a post-doctoral fellow with*

**Ingegneria Industriale e dell'Informazione***Università degli Studi della Campania*, where starting from January 2022 he became a untenured assistant professor (RTD-A). His research interests are in the area of machine learning, with particular reference to Artificial Neural Networks and Reinforcement Learning.
