I'm a researcher at the Ubiquitous Internet group, IIT-CNR, Pisa, Italy.
My research interests are:
- opportunistic traffic offloading
- energy issues in opportunistic networks
- opportunistic networking (routing, content dissemination)
- performance modelling of mobile ad hoc networks (especially with non-exponential mobility)
- social networks and models for human mobility
- pervasive computing
- smart transportation (car sharing)
My papers have been cited more than 1400 times and my H-index is 15 (Google Scholar).
I'm currently working under the H2020 ESPRIT and FP7 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.
