I obtained my master’s degree magna cum laude in Computer Engineering with a thesis on “Improvements in Radio Resources Management in a Cellular Hierarchical System” at the Universita' della Calabria, Italy in 2000. In 2001 I was awarded a one-year CNIT (National Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications) grant and I also had a six month internship at Value Team (technological consulting company of the Value Partners group). In 2002 I started my doctoral studies at the Università della Calabria. In 2004 I spent 3 months at the Università di Bologna where I implemented a city-traffic simulator to be used along with a cellular network simulator for telecommunications hot spot simulation. I obtained my Ph.D. in March 2006 with a dissertation on “New Algorithms of Mobility and Resource Management for Wireless Networks”. During my last year of doctoral studies I joined the BWN (Broadband Wireless Networking) Lab at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA, USA. From December 2005 until September 2010, I worked as a research fellow and a contract professor at the Titan Lab of the Department of Electronics, Computer and System Sciences, Universita' della Calabria, Italy. From October 2010 to August 2012 I worked with the FUN (former POPS) Team at INRIA Lille - Nord Europe as a postdoctoral researcher. I'm currently an Associate Professor at the Université de Technologie de Compiègne, in the Network&Optimization group within the Heudiasyc Lab.
