About me

I am a Ph.D. student in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in my third year of Ph.D. studies at the Department of Computer Science, Modeling, Electronics and Systems Engineering (DIMES) of the University of Calabria. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from DIMES in 2018 and my Master’s degree in Computer Engineering (Big Data Analytics and Data Science) from DIMES in 2020. Currently, I am a member of the Scalable Computing and Cloud Laboratory (SCALab) at DIMES, where I contribute to research and development projects. From July to December 2023, I was a visiting researcher at the Department of Computer Science and Technology of the University of Cambridge, collaborating with the Mobile Systems Research Lab. Previously, I was a research fellow from January to November 2021 at DIMES, working on a research project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program, titled “ASPIDE – exAScale ProgramIng models for extreme Data procEssing”. Since 2022, I have been a contract professor at DIMES.
