I am an Associate Professor at Dipartimento Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria of Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science of Queen Mary University of London.

My research interests cover a broad spectrum of topics in both networks and systems. Specifically, end-host network stacks, programmable hardware and network monitoring. Details of my publications can be found on my Google Scholar profile or my publications page.

My research has been awarded with the best paper at ACM SIGCOMM 2017, the UK Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) New Investigator, the Facebook Networking Systems Research 2020, the ACM SIGCOMM 2020 Student Research competition with Sebastiano Miano and the ACM CoNEXT best poster 2021.

I am always looking for motivated students. If you have interests similar to mine, feel free to reach out!
