In 2020, he was awarded an EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship. The Boss Ex Machina project aims to map practices of automated decision-making and assess the adequacy of EU and national legal frameworks for enabling worker-centred workplaces.

Antonio regularly publishes research papers in major academic journals. He has co-authored Your Boss is an Algorithm. Artificial Intelligence, Platform Work and Labour (Hart Publishing 2022, with Valerio De Stefano), which provides a compass to navigate the era of radical advancements. His research has been cited by policy documents, case law and media reports.

He is currently involved in various projects on the sociolegal implications of algorithmic management, platform work, non-standard employment, remote work, and collective rights, commissioned by international institutions, national governments and research centres.
