Supervision of Ph.D. students
I have been the thesis supervisor of twelve Ph.D. students who graduated from ETH or UPMC/Sorbonne between 2007 and 2018. Some are pursuing careers in the industry (insurance, resources, technology), some stayed in the academia as researchers, and three of them now occupy tenured or tenure-track positions. I am currently the supervisor of two Ph.D students at Univ. of Padua, UPMC/Sorbonne.

Supervision of M.Sc. students
I have supervised the final dissertation works of two M.Sc. students, University of Naples and UPMC/ Sorbonne.

Participation in various professional committees
I have been part of seven PhD thesis committees, one French Habilitation committee. I am part of the GJI editorial board.
