PEOPLE

Carlo Brandolese, PhD (Assistant Professor)

Since 2003 is assistant professor at POLIMI. He has been working until 1997 at Italtel as CAD Engineer, being responsible of the FPGA design flows and methodologies. Since 1997 he has been involved in several EU funded projects (SEED, INFORMA, SLAPS, PEOPLE, POET, WASP, COMPLEX). He published more than 40 papers to international conferences and journals, gaining one best paper award. He is also author of 3 books on embedded systems, logic design and C++ language.
His current interests range from low-power design, software power analysis and optimization (within the COMPLEX and SWAT projects), system-level design methodologies and co-design.

Patrick Bellasi, PhD (Research Assistant)

He holds a post-doc position at POLIMI and his advisor is Professor William Fornaciari. Previously, he has been external researcher in the Embedded System Technology Group of AST - STMicroelectronics working on dynamic power management for consumer electronics. He contributes to FP7-2PARMA project, focusing on system-wide run-time resource management policies and mechanisms. His research interests are in the area of embedded systems, focusing especially on resource and power management at Operating System level, the development of efficient embedded platforms, in light of upcoming many-core architecture challenges.
He is the developer in chief of the BBQ research project.

Simone Corbetta, Ms (Phd Student)

Simone received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in 2006, developing a thesis on hardware and software bitstream relocation for FPGA-based dynamically reconfigurable designs. He received the M.Sc. degree from the same institution in 2009 and from University of Illinois at Chicago in 2008, discussing a thesis about the design of a Network-on-Chip architecture for dynamically reconfigurable systems, with a novel solution to the routing problem. He is now a full-time PhD student at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione, and his advisor is Professor William Fornaciari. His current research interests include: thermal profile optimization of multi-core architectures with strong emphasis on reliability; NBTI mitigation at microarchitecture level of superscalar processors; NBTI mitigation in FPGA devices; power, performance, thermal and reliability architecture exploration and simulation tools.

Luigi Rucco, M.Sc. (Phd Student)

Born in Copertino (LE) on March 29th, 1985, Luigi attended the Management and Production Engineering at the Politecnico d Milano, where he received his B.Sc. in 2006, with a thesis on the “Key Performance Indicators in the Operator’s Perspective”. The thesis work aimed at identifying the state of art in performance monitoring models for enterprises’ personnel and professionals and verifying their diffusion through an empirical research conducted on leading firms of the most representative industry sectors sectors. He was then enrolled in the graduate program of Computer Engineering at Politecnico di Milano and received his M.Sc. in 2010, with a dissertation on “A Power-efficient Framework and Methodology to Configure Resource-constrained Wireless Sensor Networks”. The thesis research mainly focused on the functional and non-functional optimization of software allocation for extremely resource-constrained and pervasive computing. After his graduate studies, he has been an Associate Consultant in the Financial Services Office of Ernst&Young, where he served as strategic and operational Information Technology Risk specialist, until he joined the Ph.D. program in Information Technology at Politecnico di Milano, in September 2011.
Currently, he is a Ph.D. student at the Department of Electronics and Information of Politecnico di Milano. His main research interests concern the modeling and optimization of power consumption in embedded and dedicated architectures, particularly Wireless Sensor Networks, with special focus on code and software analysis, integrated with formal abstractions of hardware, radio and low-level layers.
