Short bio

I am Full Professor at the Department of Information Engineering (DEI) of the University of Padova, where I am one of the coordinators of the SIGNET research lab. My research interests are mainly in wireless protocols and (conventional and unconventional) networks. I got the Laurea degree in Computer Engineering (summa cum laude) in 1998, from the University of Padova, Italy and the Ph.D. in Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering in 2002, with a thesis titled "Analysis and Modeling of Wireless Data Networks" . From December 2000 to September 2001, I was a visiting scholar at the Department of Computer Science of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the research group of Prof. M. Gerla. After that, I received a few post-doc grants and fellowships on topics related to wireless networks from the University of Padova and other italian research institutions. In 2003 I won a public competition for a position of Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova, and in 2014 I became Associate Professor. In 2018 I got the full professorship habilitation from the Italian ministry of university and research (MIUR).
