Shortly after graduating he joined the research team of Consorzio Ferrara Ricerche (CFR) under the direction of Professor M. Zorzi. During his time in CFR he participated in a collaboration with NURC (Nato Undersea Research Centre, la Spezia, Italy) on MAC analysis and development and he was involved in the definition of the JANUS signaling standard.
In July 2009 he joined Patavina Technologies's research and development department to work on projects involving programming and software design on underwater acoustics and wireless sensors networks. He spent two month at NURC centre as a contractor on network simulation issues.
In March 2011 he joined u-blox, a leading fabless semiconductor provider of embedded positioning and wireless communication solutions for the consumer, industrial and automotive markets, as Software, Protocol Stack, Engineer.
In May 2011 he also became a consultant for CFR on underwater acoustic network simulation topics.
His main interests are 2G/3G and beyond protocol stack analysis and development for embedded wireless modules and solutions.
His research interests are underwater acoustic and wireless sensor networks.
As to underwater networks, his focus is on MAC and DTN (Delay Tolerant Networks) protocols analysis, design and implementation. He recently developed for NURC an underwater simulation framework called World Ocean Simulation System (WOSS) presented at WUWNet 2009, Berkley, CA. He was involved in a two year collaboration with NURC on MAC analysis and protocol design and he took part in two research projects on network analysis and design: a FP7 funded project called CLAM (CoLlAborative eMbedded networs for sumbarine surveillance), and an IIT funded project called NAUTILUS (Network Architecture and protocols for Underwater Telerobotics via acoustIc Links in Ubiquitous Sensing, monitoring and explorations).
As to wireless sensor networks his focus was on communication technologies development and implementation on embedded systems. He was involved in the FP7 funded SWAP (Symbiotic Wireless Autonomous Powered system) project.
