He has been full professor of general psychology at the University of Siena (2001-2011), and director of the ISTC-CNR in Rome (2002-2011), where he is presently coordinator of the Goal-Oriented Agents Lab. A cognitive scientist with a background in linguistics and psychology, he is also active in the multi-agent systems and social simulation communities. He introduced the study of goal-directed action and normative behavior in distributed artificial intelligence, and at the same time championed the use of the autonomous agents paradigm and social simulation in cognitive psychology and social science.
