I'm a researcher in the Ubiquitous
group, led by
Marco Conti, at IIT-CNR in Pisa.
My research interests are:
- opportunistic networks (routing, content dissemination)
- performance modelling of mobile ad hoc networks (especially with non-exponential mobility)
- social networks
- models for human mobility
My papers have been cited more than 900 times and my H-index is 14 (Google Scholar).
I'm currently working under the RECOGNITION, EINS, and MOTO EU projects.
I hold a Ph.D. in Information Engineering and a M.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering, both from the University of Pisa.
From September 2008 to December 2008 I've been a visiting Ph.D. student at the Communication Systems
Group (CSG), Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, Swiss Federal
Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, Switzerland.
I'm teaching a Ph.D. course on Online and Mobile Social Networking at IMT Lucca together with Andrea Passarella.
