Short Bio

I joined CNR - IEIIT as a researcher in March 2013. Prior to that, I have been a Maître de Conférences (tenured assistant professor) at INSA Lyon, since September 2009, and a PhD student and PostDoc fellow at Politecnico of Torino, between 2005 and 2009. I received Master degrees from University of Illinois at Chicago, in 2003, and Politecnico di Torino, in 2004, and I have been a visiting researcher at Rice University, in 2006 and 2007, and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, in 2008. I hold an Habilitation à diriger des recherches from INSA Lyon and Université Lyon I, obtained in 2014. Additional personal information can be found here.


I am carrying out research at CNR - IEIIT. I am also a collaborator at the UrbaNet INRIA team hosted by the CITI Lab of INSA Lyon. My current interests are in the following research areas:

  • User mobility characterization in wireless access and spontaneous networks
  • Mobile traffic data mining and analysis
  • Privacy in mobile traffic datasets
  • Content download, upload and propagation in vehicular networks
More details, including collaborations, professional service, and downloadable material, are available here. A list of the research projects I am involved in can be found here.

I am currently looking for one postodoctoral fellow with a very strong research record in the fields of mobile networking or data mining. Feel free to contact me if you meet these requirements.

I am inviting applications for postdoctoral positions on topics related to my current research activities, also through fellowships such as those offered by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
