About Me

Currently, I am working with some of the great minds in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks in Dynamic Distributed Decentralized Systems (D3S) group, a cross-institutional research group of University of Trento and E3DA  in Bruno Kessler Foundation. My research involves the design and optimization of novel cross-layer MAC and Routing protocols for Ultra-Low-Power Wake-up Radios to enable Low Energy Internet of Things (LE-IoT).

Besides all this fancy technology, conceptual and theoretical work I like to be offline in nature, photographing, traveling and doing sports.
