Biography

I originally came from Italy. In 2001 I applied for an Internship at Sony SDCE in Brussels, studying the impact of Agent-based frameworks on the nascent Java J2ME technology.

After graduation, I started working for Quinary Spa (Milan, Italy) on several carrier-grade projects, mainly concerning solutions for wireless operators (Vodafone) and IPSs (Tiscali).

In 2004 I joined Alcatel-Lucent (then Alcatel) in Antwerp, Belgium as a Software Architect for their solutions in the Fixed and Residential Software Unit. This was initially limited to architecture design and software development, then it expanded to coordinating and supporting our remote development team in India.
In 2006 I moved to their CTO and Research unit, which was merged with Bell-Labs in 2007. I have been active in research ever since, exploring new technological areas linked to software platforms and wireless.
In 2008 I participated in a mini-MBA organized by Flanders Business School where I and my team developed a real use-case for a gaming start-up.
After that I participated as researcher as well as coordinator in several European-founded research projects, involving international cooperation with Universities, Research Centres and other companies.

Honors and Awards

ITEA Achievement Silver Award

ITEA

November 2011

The ITEA2 Usenet project that was instrumental in helping ALU acquire the rapporteur position of the normative Technical Specification Document w.r.t architecture in the ETSI M2M WG, now was also awarded with the ITEA Achievement silver award. 

ITEA2 Usenet ran from 2008 to 2010 and the BL SIRD participation (Philippe Dobbelaere, Johan Moreels, Claudio Forlivesi with some help of Sebastien Bocq) concentrated on 2 main topics:

 

  1. The application of Virtual Private Adhoc Networks for M2M related applications (joint work with the University of Ghent)
  2. The use of REST and resources/names management through DNS-SD for M2M related application architectures

 

Our REST work was submitted as contribution to the starting ETSI M2M WG, and helped ALU acquire a prominent role in that WG.

Professional Activities

I am part of the Internet of Things Research Group of Bell-Labs, Antwerp. As part of this group, my duties involve the creation, realization and testing of novel ideas and ways in which information can be consumed by end users.
My specialties concern the technological part of information consumption, which is how information from users are collected, stored and processed, including the algorithms and technologies that make all of this possible.
