My main research interests are within the area of
Artificial Intelligence. More specifically, my interests
have been focused on Logic Programming, Non-Monotonic
Reasoning, Knowledge Representation, Model Based Diagnosis.
Recently, a great part of my research work is directed
towards the problem of Knowledge Base Updates and on
Evolution and Reactivity in the Web this latter topic being
the main focus of a working group of EU project Rewerse. I wrote a number of
papers, and had some projects, on these subjects. I've
also organized a couple of conferences and served in
editorial boards of journals and programme committees
