ABOUT ME. I am Associate Professor and former HoD at Computer Science department at Camerino University, Italy. I got my Ph.D. in 2006 at the Computer Science Department of University of L'Aquila. Afterwards I cooperated with the European Space Agency (ESA) on the CUSPIS FP6 project to design and implement novel security protocols and secure geo tags for works of art authentication. To this end I was combining traditional security mechanisms and satellite data. In 2007 I was Research Associate at the Computing Department, Distributed System and Policy Group, Imperial College London . There I was working on the UBIVAL EPRC project in cooperation with Cambridge, Oxford, Birmingham and UCL for building a novel middleware to support the programming of body sensor networks. In 2010 I was Senior Lecturer at Middlesex University in the Distributed Systems and Networking Department. I funded the SSI LAB that performs basic research in various aspects of the design, implementation, analysis, and evaluation of distributed systems. The lab conducts research with systems at all scales, from sensors devices to cloud computing data centers and takes an experimental system approach in building real systems to investigate new research ideas. Particular areas of interest include wireless sensor networks, networking, middleware and smart environment programming.

I am also CEO of the bilancioCO2zero spinoff. An innovative company for building energy efficient solutions and reducing CO2 emission.

Consultancy. From 2002 till 2007 I was running a software company composed of over 10 employees. We built software for large companies such as FIAT, PREXIS. My company main expertise was the implementation of distributed monitoring software for monitoring the pollution produced by incinerators. We used various technologies to build the systems such as SCADA, PLC, C, Java and Oracle.
