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.
Our paper The stability region of the delay in Pareto opportunistic networks has been accepted for publication on Transactions on Mobile Computing! [PDF]
Our paper on forwarding models under Pareto/hyper-exponenttial mobility has been accepted for publication on Computer Communications! [PDF]
I'm the guest editor of the Computer Communications Special Issue on Opportunistic Networking, together with Kyunghan Lee, Melek Önen, Joerg Ott, and Elena Pagani. Check out the CFP here.
I'm currently in the TPC of ACM CHANTS'14, IEEE ICCVE 2014, IEEE ICDCN 2015.
I'm in the organizing committee of IEEE PerCom'15 (Publication Chair).
