About me

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Max Planck Institute for Informatics in the Network and Cloud Systems group, advised by Prof. Yiting Xia.

My main research interests lie in Network and Operating Systems, with a strong focus on Data Center Networks. As computing power is moving to Data Centers, I believe there is much to be gained in terms of efficiency and sustainability by pushing the current boundaries of engineering. In that regard, I have been working on Optical Data Center Networks, which have the potential to efficiently serve large-scale infrastructures in the future.

I am passionate about building systems and making things work, I aim for my research projects to be built into working prototypes available for everybody to experiment with. Such philosophy probably comes from my collaboration with Prof. Renzo Davoli in his Virtualsquare laboratory during my B.Sc. at University of Bologna, to whom I owe part of my passion for Operating Systems.
