In 2010 he moved one year in Australia, to live in a multicultural environment. In October 2011, he came back to start the Master Degree in Computer Engineering, with network orientation, and in 2013 he graduated from Politecnico di Torino with summa cum laude. His master thesis was about an analysis of the security of NFC access control system.
In January 2014, he started the PhD in the Electronic Department with the Telecommunication Networks Group under the supervision of Prof. Marco Mellia.
His research interests are focused on data analysis in small data and big data environments exploiting statistical and machine learning techniques. In particular, his interests are related to network measurements, and experiments meant to analyse network data and possibly highlight anomalies. In addition to the networking measurements, he is currently involved in a project to study future evolutions of car sharing mobility in smart cities. He actively participated in 7 conference papers and 2 journal papers, being awarded with the best students paper award at the ITC 2015 conference, and the IETF Applied Networking Research Prize 2017. He also spent two periods abroad in the CAIDA research center located in the UC San Diego university and Narus Inc. a company with headquarter in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In April 2017 he finished and now he holds an Assistant Professor position at the Department of Control and Computer Engineering.
