luca [dot] vassio [at] polito [dot] it

Mathematical Engineer (M.Sc. degree in mathematical modelling for engineering), he is currently finishing a PhD in Electronics and Communication Engineering. In the last years he was hosted and worked for Bell Labs, MIT, UFMG, EPFL.

He is interested in many fields of data science, from big data analytics problems to the usage of statistical, machine learning and data mining approaches. He is expert in creating analytical and data-driven models of real phenomena and  optimizing performances in different scenarios.

In 2009 and 2010, he collaborated in the design and construction of a hydrogen fuel cell low-consumption vehicle (Team H2polito). In 2013 and 2014 he was employed by GE Aviation for optimizing aeronautical low-pressure turbines.

His current work is focused on studying the behaviour of the people both on the internet and in cars, with focus on two complementary aspects: (i) data analytics, and (ii) user modelling

His research interests include:

  • Data-driven and analytical modelling of human behaviour
  • Internet traffic data analysis and dynamics over networks
  • Machine learning and data mining for big data analytics
  • Optimization algorithms (metaheuristics, operations research, trust-region...)
  • Applications to automotive and aeronautical engineering
