Short biography

I was born in Milan (Italy) on April 12th, 1974. I received the Laurea degree (BS, MS) in Telecommunication Engineering (summa cum laude) from the University of Padova (Italy) in 1998. In February 2002 I received the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from the University of Brescia, Italy. Since March 2005 I am a Permanent Resercher in Computer Networks at the University of Brescia.

My research interests include techniques and methods for the simulation of packet networks and the evaluation of their performances; development of QoS enabled algorithms for Medium Access Control in 802.11 networks; and statistical analysis of network traffic.
