me @my desk!

My full name’s pronunciation in IPA is [ˈd͡ʒaːkomo ˈbe:rgami], and I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Game Technology at Newcastle University.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree (110/110, summa cum Laude) from Alma Mater Studiorum, Bologna University on the 13th of November 2012. The Bachelor Thesis, “PjProject su Android: Uno scontro su più livelli” (en. PjProject on Android: a clash on multiple layers), was supervised by prof. Vittorio Ghini [1][2]; it addressed a feasibility study on porting native Linux applications using the pjsip stack on Android: to check that, I had to study the whole interaction between Java application and native libraries through the so-called Android Middleware (AOSP).

I received my Master’s Degree (110/110, summa cum Laude) from Alma Mater Studiorum, Bologna University on the 17th of July 2014 (first graduation session) with a thesis called “Hypergraph Mining in Social Networks“, supervised by prof. Danilo Montesi; it addressed for the first time an data mining relational algebra for hypergraphs that had the aim to logically define Data Mining operations and metric over OSNs (On-Line Social Networks).

From the 1st of November 2014 to the 1st of November 2017, I was a PhD Candidate at Bologna University, Italy, CSE Dept., School of Sciences. Prof. Danilo Montesi was my PhD supervisor. My PhD thesis focused on two novel graph operators: graph joins (for combining data) and graph nesting (for structural aggregations). These two operators were inserted in a broader data integration scenario that was presented in my thesis defence. From mid-January 2017 until the end of May 2017, I was a visiting PhD student at Universität Leipzig. I finally obtained my Ph.D. on the 20th of April, 2018.
