Biography

I am an Associate Research Scientist with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, working with Tommaso Melodia.
I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Missouri University of Science and Technology in December 2016. My PhD advisor was Sajal K. Das, one of the most published and cited authors in the fields of computer networks and pervasive computing.
I received my B.S. and M.S. in Computer Engineering with highest honors from University of Pisa, Italy in 2009 and 2011, respectively. I also held a research position at the National Research Council of Italy, where I worked with Marco Conti. My M.S. advisor was Giuseppe Anastasi.
