Biography

I am a Network Scientist and Engineer with 6 years of experience in academic research and managing of research projects funded by national industries, the European Commission and the European Space Agency.

I received my Ph.D. and M.Sc. degree on Telecommunication Engineer from the University of Genoa in 2012 and 2008, respectively. In 2013 I was Post-Doc research fellow at NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering and Visiting Research Fellow at New York University Abu Dhabi. From 2014 to 2016 I was a Post-Doc research fellow at the University of Genoa, coordinating with my advisor - on a daily basis - the scientific activity of our 3 PhD students and Master students of our laboratory. I am co-advisor and supervisor in PhD, Master and Bachelor Degree thesis at University of Genoa since 2009 supporting the work of almost 30 students.

I have proficient programming skills in C/C++ and Python and an in-depth knowledge in Linux-based emulation of telecommunication networks, IP networking technologies, SDN, L2 to L4 forwarding, QoS, traffic engineering and routing protocols. Moreover, I have a strong background on Markov chains, queuing theory, linear/nonlinear optimization and dynamic programming.

Currently I am a researcher at Nokia Bell Labs in Dublin, Ireland (eircode D15 Y6NT). My research interests concern: Software Defined Networking, Multi-Tentant Datacenters, Nanosatellite Networks for rural access and Network Modelling/Teletraffic Engineering.
