Short Bio

I am a researcher at CNR - IEIIT, Italy. I received MSc degrees from University of Illinois at Chicago, IL, USA, and Politecnico of Torino, Italy, a PhD degree from Politecnico di Torino, Italy, and a Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (HDR) from Université de Lyon, France. I held positions as Maître de Conférences (Associate Professor) at Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA) de Lyon, France, Associate Researcher at Inria, France, visiting research fellow at Rice University, TX, USA, and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain, and a visiting research fellow at University College London (UCL), UK. I am a senior member of IEEE, and a member of ACM. Additional personal information can be found here.


I am carrying out research at CNR - IEIIT. I am also a collaborator at the Agora 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.
