Federico Cerutti was born in Gavardo, Brescia, Italy, in 1985. He received his B.Sc. ("Laurea di primo livello") in Information Engineering (Ingegneria dell'Informazione) and M.Sc.Eng. ("Laurea specialistica") in Computer Science and Engineering ("Ingegneria Informatica") cum laude from the University of Brescia in 2006 and 2008 respectively.
He received his Ph.D. in computer science in 2012 from the University of Brescia and currently he is a lecturer at Cardiff University. His research activity is focused mainly on nonmonotonic reasoning (in particular argumentation theory), and on decision support with uncertainty and trust. He studied suitable models of arguments and critiques for practical reasoning and decision support, and provided efficient algorithms for solving relevant problems in argumentation theory thus significantly improving the current state-of-the-art.
He has been one of the organisers of both COMMA 2010 and COMMA 2014.
He is co-author of more than 30 peer-reviewed papers, including five journal papers, and co-editor of two book.
