My current role is Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano. After the head of the Performance Evaluation group at Politecnico di Milano, Prof. Giuseppe Serazzi, retired in 2013, I am in charge of the “Analytical techniques and Tools for performance evaluation and optimization” Activity in System Architecture research line, “Dipartimenti di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria”, Politecnico of Milano.

I got my degree in Computer Science from the University of Turin in 1997 (MS) and 2001 (Ph.D.). I have been assistant professor (researcher) in Computer Science since 1/11/2001: first at the University of Turin (from 1/11/2001 to 28/2/2010) then at the Politecnico of Milan (from 1/3/2010 to 14/7/2015) . My research interests include performance evaluation and energy optimization of computing systems, cloud infrastructures, Big-Data applications and communication networks. My studies in these fields take advantage of advanced modeling techniques such as Markovian Agents, mean field approximations, fluid models, multi-formalism models and multi-class queuing networks. To ease my goals, I support the development of software tools to define, analyze and evaluate performance models. I also have a secondary research line in computer graphics, mainly focused on Virtual and Augmented Reality low cost applications.

I am author of several books, journal papers and international conference papers – all indexed on the main scientific web resources. I presented 8 invited papers (including one keynote speech), 4 tutorials and won two best-paper awards. I served several scientific committees for international conferences (2 as general chair, 2 as program chair, 2 as co-chair, 1 as tool chair), I have been reviewer for international journals such as Performance Evaluation, and part of Ph.D. candidates’ evaluation boards. I was the principal scientific investigator of an industrial project worth 322k Euro. I have been in charge for 18 years of university courses on different subjects, both at the BS and at MS level. Lectures have been given both in Italian and English. I have tutored more than 200 theses, both at the BS and MS level. I have been co-advisor of three Ph.D. students, and I have been the main advisor of one Ph.D. student.


MS in Computer Science on 25/3/1997, from the University of Turin – Italy, with a score of 110/110, plus laude, honorific mention and publication. The subject of the Thesis was “Queuing Network with Blocking: qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques”. The advisors were Prof. Gianfranco Balbo and Prof. Matteo Sereno (from the University of Turin) and Prof. Carla Simone (from the University of Milan).

Ph.D. in Computer Science on 15/2/2002, from the University of Turin, with the dissertation of the Ph.D. thesis: “Hybrid formalism for performance evaluation”. The advisors were Prof. Gianfranco Balbo and Matteo Sereno (From the University of Turin).
