Research Interests

Design and performance evaluation of distributed protocols, in particular in the area of mobile communications and networking. Current research addresses the design of energy-efficient solutions for wireless networks; the development and evaluation of protocols for ad hoc and sensor networks, the design of architectures and protocols for underwater sensor networks and delay tolerant networks; Previously I worked in the area of fault-tolerant systems, in particular in the sub-area of system-level diagnosis.

Another area of research started is on the topic of Mathematical Models for Privacy Issues. In particular in the area of cyberphysical systems, i.e. Privacy and CyberSecurity concerns and solutions in the application of IoT Platforms and Cloud/Fog Computing.
