Bio

I am a senior engineer at Fastly, currently working on network systems and load balancing problems. From 2011 to 2015 I did my Ph.D. at University College London. My thesis investigated design issues in networked caching systems. For my research, I was awarded the Fabrizio Lombardi prize in 2016. From 2008 to 2011 I was a research engineer at Orange Labs. During this period I filed five patent applications and for one of them I received the Orange Labs best patent of the year award in 2011. I received a B.S. in Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy) in 2007, where I graduated top of my class, and an M.S. in Telecommunications with Distinction from University College London in 2008. I am a reviewer for IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, ACM Computing Surveys, IEEE Communications Magazine and Elsevier Computer Communications. I am member of the program committee of O'Reilly Velocity.
