I received my PhD title at Universidad Carlos III the Madrid and IMDEA Networks Institute in June 2017. My PhD dissertation, which title was “Analytical characterization of inband and outband D2D communications for network access”, was mainly focused on:

  • Analytical modeling of wireless network communication technologies, as 4G/5G or IEEE 802.11;
  • Design of mechanisms improving wireless network efficiency, as Device-to-Device communications or Inter-Cell Interference Coordination;
  • Greening access network operations.

I joined Politecnico in July 2017 as Post-Doc, working with Carla Chiasserini and Claudio Cassetti, on closely related topics.

During my doctorate I published about 10 articles in international conferences, INFOCOM 2017 among them, which impact on the research community is testified by 2 different awards (Best Paper Award at IEEE OnlineGreencomm and Honorable Mention at COMSNETS). I have been TPC chair of EdgeCom’17, of EdgeCom’18, the Graduate Forum of COMSNETS ’18¬†and reviewer for major journals and conferences such as IEEE Transaction on Green Communications and Networking, IEEE Transaction on Communications, JSAC, INFOCOM, ITC, WoWMoM, since 2014. I was mostly involved in the research activity and in the management of the European Project FP7-CROWD. Here at Politecnico, instead, I am working in 5G-Tranformers.

I also received two M.SC. degrees, the first one in Telecommunications Engineering with a specialization in Telecommunication Networks from the University of Pisa (2012), the second one in Telematic Engineering from Universidad Carlos III (2013). During my studies, I also had the possibility of passing internship periods in top universities and industrial research departments. In 2016 I passed 6 months in Telecom ParisTech, France, under the supervision of Professor Dr. Thomas Bonald and Dr. James Roberts. In 2011, instead, I passed 6 months in NEC Europe, Germany.
