Nota biografica: 

Valentino Santucci (Ph.D.) is an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering at the University for Foreigners of Perugia (Italy), where he is the Vice Rector for Technology Transfer from 2021. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Perugia (Italy) in 2012. His main research interests are in the broad areas of Artificial Intelligence and Computational Intelligence. In particular, in the area of Evolutionary Computation, his research focuses on algebraic frameworks for studying combinatorial search spaces and the dynamics of evolutionary algorithms. Other areas of interest include natural language processing and machine learning applications to both e-learning and sustainability issues. He is also an enthusiast of technology-enhanced learning methods. He has authored over fifty scientific publications, organised special sessions and workshops at international conferences, and served as editor and guest editor for WoS/Scopus indexed scientific journals. Finally, he has taught artificial intelligence, computer science and information technology at the University for Foreigners of Perugia, the University of Perugia and the Hong Kong Baptist University.
