Francesco Cauteruccio


Hello! I am Francesco Cauteruccio. Currently, I am a Research Fellow (RTDA) at Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Calabria, Arcavacata di Rende (Italy). I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the same department. I have been a visiting Ph.D. student at CERMEP, CREATIS, Université Claude Bernand Lyon 1, Lyon (France).

My overall research interests lie in string similarity metrics, network science, metaheuristics, bioinformatics and data mining.

Except for computer science, I love music, literature, travels and gaming. I am an alto saxophonist as well.

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.
