Massimo Gallo

Paris-Saclay, France


I am a Member of Technical Staff at Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, since May 2013.
My main research interests are on the performance evaluation, simulation, system design and experimentation on networked systems. My current research activities focus on Name-based networking, Programmable networks, Traffic generation, Content Delivery Networks and Virtualization.


I received the Ph.D degree in Networks and computer science in 2012 from the Telecom ParisTech University (Paris, France) under the supervision of Prof. Dario Rossi (Telecom ParisTech) My Ph.D research has been funded throughh a CIFRE contract between Telecom ParisTech and Orange Labs France Télécom R&D, where I worked with Dr. Luca Muscariello (Orange Labs, France Télécom R&D). I discussed my PhD defense in November the 23rd, 2012 with the title ”Traffic and Resource Management in Content-Centric Networks : Design and Evaluation”. I received the M. S.in computer and communication networks in 2008 from the Politecnico di Torino(Turin, Italy).My research Master thesis project was on ”P2P-TV systems measurements” under the supervision of Prof. M. Mellia. I received the B.S.  in computer and communication networks from the Politecnico di Torino (Mondovi, Italy).
