Research Activities

I have been a Ph.D student at ReTiS Lab of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, in Pisa (Italy), from 2008 to 2011. My supervisor was Prof. Giuseppe Lipari.

During this period I (co)authored some publications and have been involved in some EU funded projects. More information on my publications are available on my ResearchGate and my Citations.

My area of research was Real-Time systems, with focus on real-time scheduling algorithms and synchronization protocols, and their practical implementation in “Open Systems”, where hard, soft and non real-time activities coexist. I also played a bit with the Linux kernel, trying to improve its real-time capabilities. I defended my PhD thesis “Soft Real-Time Scheduling and Synchronization in General Purpose Operating Systems” on January 2012.

I helped (a little bit) with teaching, serving as Lab assistant for the Real-Time Operating System course at the University of Siena (still Italy).
