Northeastern University Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems Lab


I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Engineering at Northeastern University, Boston, MA. I earned my B.S. in Telecommunications Engineering and my M.S. in Computer and Communication Networks Engineering with honors from Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy in 2014 and 2015, respectively. I have been working as IT consultant in the Data-warehousing and Business Intelligence scope. My current research activity is focused on Software Defined Networks in Wireless scenario and Eterogeneous wireless technologies harmonious coexistence schemes under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Tommaso Melodia.
