I was born in Cassino, Italy, and moved right away to my home town, Benevento, in the center-south of Italy.
In 2010, soon after graduating at University of Sannio in Computer Engineering, I started doing research and student tutoring on Networking and Service-oriented Architectures at the same university, as a research assistant.
In March 2011, I started my Ph.D. Programme in Computer Engineering at the Department of Engineering
of University of Sannio, under the supervision of Prof. Eugenio Zimeo,
during which I was also involved in teaching activities related to the courses on Computer Networks, Distributed Systems, Web Technologies
and Software Programming.
During my Ph.D., I also spent some months at the Department of Electronics and Information (DEI) of Politecnico di Milano.
I completed my Ph.D. in July 2014, by discussing a thesis entitled Scalable Service Composition in Autonomic Computing. Soon after my Ph.D. defense, I started a post-doc at Unisannio, ant participated to the project MyOpenGov.
In November 2014, I moved to Lyon, France and started an INRIA post-doc in the UrbaNet team of the CITI-lab in INSA Lyon. Together with my UrbaNet colleagues, Marco Fiore and Razvan Stanica, I am involved in the ANR ABCD project on Adaptive Behavior and Cloud Distribution.
My interests are in the fields of data analysis, mobile networking, distributed systems and software programming. My research at University of Sannio was focused on Service-oriented Architectures (SOA), and, specifically, on devising efficient and effective approaches for service composition in P2P networks. I also worked on context-awareness, self-organizing systems for workflow management, Semantic Web and Quality of Service (QoS). At University of Sannio, I started my research on graph analysis, clustering algorithms, big data analysis, recommendation systems and social networking.
My current research is about exploiting mobile-phone traffic data to support planning and management of mobile networks, city-planning and socio-economic characterization of urban environments.
You can have a look at my research activity for more details.
I have been involved in several journal/conference paper reviews. A selection of journals for which I was an invited reviewer follows:
I enjoyed teaching at University of Sannio and I am currently "Vacataire" (Part-time lecturer) at INSA-Lyon.
My Courses and laboratory sessions are related to Networking, Distributed Systems, Software Programming and Engineering.
Slides on P2P networks for the Networks2 course at INSA-Lyon can be downloaded from here (updated on Nov, 23rd 2015).
You can access some of the code developed during my research activity (related to my PhD thesis). Other code/projects are not publicly available due to confidentiality agreements with industrial partners. For further details, you can however write me by using one of my contacts.
