Biography

I am an Assistant Professor (RTD-A) at University of Milano-Bicocca (Milano, Italy).

I received my BSc (2010) and MSc (2012, summa cum laude) in Telecommunications Engineering (Networking area) both from Politecnico di Milano (Milano, Italy). My master thesis investigated users' privacy concerns in a Smart Grid scenario.

In June 2016 I pursued a PhD degree in Information Technology at Politecnico di Milano. During my PhD studies I worked on Content Delivery and on the emerging Network Function Virtualization (NFV) paradigm. 

From March 2016 to March 2020 I worked with Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento, Italy) initially as Postdoc Researcher, being promoted to Expert Researcher in 2018. I was involved on several research topics including Fog Computing, Network Monitoring, SDN Multi-layer Networks and NFV.

In April 2020 I joined the Department of Informatics, Systems and Communication (DISCo) of University of Milano-Bicocca, where I am currently working on Multi-Access Edge Computing and on Artificial Intelligence applied to telecommunications, being also carrying on teaching activities.

In June 2021 and January 2022 I pursued the Italian Scientific Habilitation (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale) to the role of Associate Professor (Professore II Fascia) in Telecommunications (ING-INF/03 - Telecomunicazioni) and Computer Science (INF/01 - Informatica).

I have published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers in reputed international journals and conferences (ORCID). You are also welcome to visit the website of the DISCo's Real time Events and Decision Support (REDS) laboratory.
