Francesco Cauteruccio


Hello! I am Francesco Cauteruccio. I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at University of Calabria, Arcavata di Rende (Italy). Currently, I'm a visiting Ph.D. student at CERMEP, CREATIS, Université Claude Bernand Lyon 1, Lyon (France).

My overall research interests lie in Algorithms, Bioinformatics and Data mining and Data Analysis. In particular, my research focuses on string metrics and applications.

Except for computer science, I love music, literature, travels and videogames. I'm an alto saxophonist and I really love writing.

Feel free to write me at cauteruccio {}

Scholar H-Index Calculator
Scholar H-Index Calculator is a bibliometric and citation analysis tool which works as an addon for Google Chrome and Firefox. The Calculator enhances Google Scholar results pages by showing a number of bibliometric indicators computed using the data appearing on video as input. Once installed, the Calculator works transparently when querying Google Scholar: as soon as you make a query, result pages are enriched with a number of useful data (e.g., the h-index computed on the basis of displayed data), and new functions are available. Visit the homepage for more information and download.
