Welcome!

Gabriele Fici
I am currently a Ricercatore a Tempo Determinato (Assistant Professor) in the Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica at Università di Palermo (Italy).

My research focuses on the combinatorial and algorithmic aspects of strings. I am interested in problems on finite and infinite strings arising in different areas of theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics.
